BACKGROUND Aging is associated with a decline in skeletal muscle size.Muscle is critical both for mobility and glucose disposal. While resistance exercise (RE) increases muscle mass and function in the elderly, its role in improving glucose utilization is less clear. AIMS To investigate whether muscle size was linked with insulin sensitivity (IS) in… CONTINUE READING
