BACKGROUND In a previous study we found that elevated blood viscosity was linked to the insulin resistance syndrome, and we proposed that high blood viscosity may increase insulin resistance. That study was based on calculated viscosity. OBJECTIVE To determine whether directly measured whole-blood viscosity was related to the insulin-resistance syndrome in the same way as calculated viscosity had been found to be. METHODS Healthy young men were examined with the hyperinsulinemic isoglycemic… CONTINUE READING
