Seven days of bed rest decrease insulin action on glucose uptake in leg and whole body.


Impaired glucose tolerance develops in normal humans after short-term bed rest. To elucidate the mechanism, insulin action on whole body glucose uptake rate (WBGUR) and leg glucose uptake rate (LGUR) was measured by sequential euglycemic clamp technique combined with femoral arterial and venous cannulation at insulin concentrations of 10 +/- 1, 18 +/- 1, 37… (More)
