To assess the effect of training on glucose disposal, we performed a longitudinal study of 11 elite cyclists before and after 4 months of intensive training compared to 11 sedentary subjects. Insulin sensitivity (SI) and glucose effectiveness (Sg) were measured using Bergman's minimal model. Sg includes basal insulin effectiveness (BIE) and a parameter termed glucose effectiveness at zero insulin (GEZI).
