Effects of type 2 diabetes and insulin on whole-body, splanchnic, and leg protein metabolism.

Abstract

CONTEXT Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is characterized by insulin resistance to glucose metabolism. Most studies suggest that protein metabolism is unaffected by T2D, but regional protein metabolism and response to multiple doses of insulin have not been examined. OBJECTIVE Our objective was to determine whether insulin regulation of splanchnic and leg protein… (More)
