AIMS The onset of insulin resistance is an important metabolic event in the development of type 2 diabetes. For patients with type 2 diabetes, we recently showed that peripheral insulin sensitivity was increased during hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT). This study aims to investigate whether this occurs in a non-patient population with and without type 2 diabetes, along with the mechanism of this effect. METHODS Overweight and obese male participants were recruited from the community, 11… CONTINUE READING
