Figures and Topics from this paper

Frailty in the elderly is associated with insulin resistance of glucose metabolism in the postabsorptive state only in the presence of increased abdominal fat
Age, AFM and MMI significantly correlated with IS, and non-obese frail persons are not more IR than their healthy counterparts. Expand
Influence of exercise intensity on abdominal fat and adiponectin in elderly adults.
A direct comparison of exercise intensity without weight loss promotes the efficacy of HI in the reduction in visceral fat, even without changes in adiponectin. Expand

Viewed collectively, the multiple benefits of resistance exercise represent an attractive option for the aging population to enhance and maintain their health from a number of perspectives that are not achievable through pharmacological intervention or with solely aerobic-based exercise. Expand

Glucose tolerance in young and older athletes and sedentary men.
Evidence is provided that regularly performed vigorous exercise can, in some individuals, prevent the deterioration of glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity with age. Expand
Mortality rate and longevity of food-restricted exercising male rats: a reevaluation.
It is concluded that moderate caloric restriction combined with exercise does not normally increase the early mortality rate in male rats, Exercise does not interfere with the extension of maximal life span by food restriction, and the beneficial effects of food restriction and exercise on survival are not additive or synergistic.

Diabetes mellitus comprises a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by high blood glucose levels. Four major types of diabetes have been defined by the National Diabetes Data Group (NDDG)Expand
Body composition of physically inactive and active 25-month-old female rats
The results suggest the possibility that the changes in body composition that occur during middle age in sedentary female rats are largely due to physical inactivity, and that the lean tissue wasting that occurs as the result of the aging process is a late event that occurs closer to the end of life. Expand
Exercise increases average longevity of female rats despite increased food intake and no growth retardation.
Results show that exercise improves average longevity of rats independent of decreased availability of energy for cell proliferation and growth, and provide evidence that an increase in food intake is not harmful when balanced by a increase in energy expenditure. Expand

Insulin Resistance in Aging Is Related to Abdominal Obesity
Insulin resistance is more closely associated with abdominal adiposity than with age, and measurements at most central body sites were significantly larger in the insulin-resistant older subjects. Expand
Abdominal fat distribution and disease: an overview of epidemiological data.
Direct observations show, and the risk factor associations further strengthen the assumption, that abdominal (visceral) obesity is more closely associated to NIDDM than CVD, while an increased WHR without obesity may be more closely linked to CVD than NID DM. Expand
Age as Independent Determinant of Glucose Tolerance
Fatness, fitness, and fat distribution can account for the decline in glucose tolerance from the young adult to the middle-aged years, however, age remains a significant determinant of the further decline in sugars tolerance of healthy old subjects. Expand
Ageing, exercise and food restriction: effects on skeletal muscle glucose uptake
The findings argue against the concept that ageing results in skeletal muscle insulin resistance in rats, and show no deterioration in glucose tolerance compared to the 9-10 month-old rats. Expand
