African-American women have been shown to be more insulin-resistant than age- and weight-matched Caucasian women, but the reasons for this difference are unclear. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether experimental manipulation of dietary fat intake has differential effects by race on insulin sensitivity (S(I)) in 20 African-American and 11 Caucasian women. Additionally, leptin levels before and after 3 weeks of an isocaloric high-fat ([HF] 50% fat, 35% carbohydrate, and 15… CONTINUE READING
