The influence of insulin on branched chain amino acid (BCAA) metabolism was investigated in healthy subjects faster for 60-64 h, using the euglycemic insulin clamp technique and hepatic venous catheterization. As compared to the postabsorptive state, fasting resulted in a 50-80% decrease in glucose disposal during the clamps, indicating insulin resistance… CONTINUE READING
