We aimed to investigate intramyocellular diglyceride as well as triglyceride levels in diabetic subjects and to explore a possible association with glycemic control. The participants of the study were 30 obese subjects stratified according to the presence of diabetes into nondiabetic obese (n = 19) and diabetic obese (n = 11… CONTINUE READING
