The ability of the heart muscle to derive energy from a wide variety of substrates provides the myocardium with remarkable capacity to adapt to the ever-changing metabolic environment depending on factors including nutritional state and physical activity. There is increasing evidence that loss of metabolic flexibility of the myocardium contributes to cardiac dysfunction in disease conditions such as diabetes, ischemic heart disease and heart failure. At the level of glucose metabolism reduced… CONTINUE READING
