Abstract

In summary, beta-adrenergic receptor blocking medications have numerous metabolic side effects. Recent evidence indicates that this class of drug acutely decreases whole-body metabolic rate and increases protein oxidation in the resting human. The result of this metabolic perturbation may be a deleterious change in body composition and perhaps a creeping… (More)
