Factors controlling metabolic flexibility (MF), the ability of the body to switch from fat to carbohydrate oxidation in response to feeding or with insulin administration, are being actively investigated. We sought to determine the effects of race (African American vs Caucasian) and diabetes status (nondiabetic vs type 2 diabetes mellitus individuals) on MF to glucose in humans. Respiratory quotient (RQ) and macronutrient substrate utilization were evaluated by indirect calorimetry during… CONTINUE READING
