AIM The aim of this study was to identify relationships between insulin sensitivity (SI), cardiorespiratory fitness and body composition in severely obese Swedish children and adolescents. METHODS Two hundred and twenty-eight obese children (119 girls, 8-16 years, body mass index (BMI) 23.2-57.0 kg/m(2)) performed a frequently sampled intravenous glucose tolerance test (FSIVGTT), a submaximal bicycle ergometry test and a dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA). RESULTS Mean SI (SD) was 0.38… CONTINUE READING
