Glycine supplementation to improve insulin sensitivity in humans

  title={Glycine supplementation to improve insulin sensitivity in humans},
  author={Marie-Hippolyte Boni Epse Attobla},
The main purpose of this pilot study was to investigate the insulin sensitizing effect of glycine as a dietary supplement in insulin resistant (IR) normoglycemic subjects (N= 10), and to determine significant changes in insulin sensitivity and lipid profile after four weeks of glycine supplementation. Descriptive statistics were used to describe the basic characteristics of the study population. A paired t-test was used to determine differences between insulin sensitivity and lipid profile… Expand


Critical evaluation of adult treatment panel III criteria in identifying insulin resistance with dyslipidemia.
ATP III criteria have low sensitivity for identifying insulin resistance with dyslipidemia in nondiabetic individuals who are at increased risk for cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Expand
Quantitative insulin sensitivity check index: a simple, accurate method for assessing insulin sensitivity in humans.
It is concluded that QUICKI is an index of insulin sensitivity obtained from a fasting blood sample that may be useful for clinical research. Expand
Pathophysiology of insulin resistance in human disease.
It is concluded that insulin resistance and its associated abnormalities are of utmost importance in the pathogenesis of NIDDM, hypertension, and coronary heart disease. Expand
Effect of training on muscle triacylglycerol and structural lipids: a relation to insulin sensitivity?
In contrast, training induced a minor increase in the content of phospholipid fatty acid membrane polyunsaturates, which may indicate that membrane lipids may have a role in the training-induced increase in insulin sensitivity. Expand
Relationship between the hyperinsulinemic-euglycaemic clamp and a new simple index assessing insulin sensitivity in overweight and obese postmenopausal women.
In that large group of non-diabetic overweight and obese postmenopausal women insulin sensitivity index derived from OGTT provided more accurate information than fasting based formula, a new simple index for the assessment of insulin sensitivity from the OGTT data (SI(is)OGTT). Expand
Plasma amino acid levels and insulin secretion in obesity.
Hyperaminoacidemia appears to be a manifestation of the insulin ineffectiveness characteristic of obesity, and may provide the feedback signal to the beta cell through which insulin resistance is accompanied by an appropriately augmented secretory rate of insulin. Expand
Carbohydrate, lipid and amino acid metabolism following physical exercise in man.
To elucidate early metabolic adaptations of physical training obese and nonobese subjects were studied before and at different intervals after 1 h of bicycle exercise at 70% of maximal working capacity to find the first sign of diminishing fat stores secondary to increased lipolysis. Expand
Insulin sensitivity indices obtained from oral glucose tolerance testing: comparison with the euglycemic insulin clamp.
A novel estimate of insulin sensitivity that is simple to calculate and provides a reasonable approximation of whole-body insulin sensitivity from the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT). Expand
Relationships between insulin secretion, insulin action, and fasting plasma glucose concentration in nondiabetic and noninsulin-dependent diabetic subjects.
Decreased peripheral insulin availability leads to increased FFA concentrations and lipid oxidation rates (and probably also increased concentrations of gluconeogenic precursors) that together stimulate gluconeogenesis, hepatic glucose production, and progressive hyperglycemia. Expand
The increase in intramyocellular lipid content is a very early response to training.
It is concluded that the increase in IMCL content is a very early response to training, preceding significant changes in insulin sensitivity, and the presence of triglycerides alone does not necessarily have detrimental effects on insulin sensitivity. Expand
