Obesity is associated with significant changes in skin combined with metabolic alterations such as insulin resistance. Our aim was to investigate the effects of insulin resistance induced by a high-fat diet on cutaneous wound healing. Male C57BL/6 mice were fed standard chow (SC group) or high-fat chow (HFC group) for 30 weeks. On day 0 (28th week), an excisional wound was performed. After 14 days (30th week), the mice were euthanized. Starting from the 8th week, the HFC group had a higher body… CONTINUE READING
