The association between mild routine exercise and glucose homeostasis, insulin dynamics, and risk factors for coronary artery disease was investigated in obese adolescent males. Subjects (n = 7; mean +/- SD age 13.3 +/- 1.4 yr) were tested before and after 15 wk of supervised mild intensity exercise. Serum glucose (GLU), insulin (IN), and C-peptide (CP) were measured in response to a mixed meal before and after the 15 wk period. Weight, body composition, peak oxygen uptake (peak VO2), resting… CONTINUE READING
