Liver, muscle, and adipose tissue insulin action is directly related to intrahepatic triglyceride content in obese subjects.

Abstract

BACKGROUND & AIMS Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is associated with insulin resistance and diabetes. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between intrahepatic triglyceride (IHTG) content and insulin action in liver (suppression of glucose production), skeletal muscle (stimulation of glucose uptake), and adipose tissue (suppression… (More)
