We previously proposed the insulin sensitivity index, Sl, as an absolute measure of whole body tissue sensitivity to insulin. Sl is defined, in the physiologic range of insulin action, as the effect of insulin to augment glucose's ability to reduce its own plasma level. This parameter can be determined from the frequently sampled intravenous glucose… CONTINUE READING
