BACKGROUND The effect of physical training on insulin resistance (IR) in chronic heart failure (CHF) remains unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS Fourteen patients with CHF performed physical training using a bicycle ergometer; 9 patients (64%) were hyperinsulinemic and insulin resistant (HOMA IR > 1.97). Exercise tolerance increased (5.1 +/- 1.7 to 6.9 +/- 2.7 METs, p < 0.05) and heart rate at rest decreased (82 +/- 15 to 72 +/- 6, p < 0.05) in the IR group after physical training.
