Myocardial insulin resistance, metabolic stress and autophagy in diabetes.


Clinical studies in humans strongly support a link between insulin resistance and non-ischaemic heart failure. The occurrence of a specific insulin-resistant cardiomyopathy, independent of vascular abnormalities, is now recognized. The progression of cardiac pathology linked with insulin resistance is poorly understood. Cardiac insulin resistance is… (More)
