Do Cardiorespiratory Fitness and Abdominal Obesity Mediate the Exercise-Induced Change in Insulin Sensitivity in Older Adults?
Aging is associated with increased insulin resistance, a condition in which the tissue response to insulin-stimulated glucose uptake is reduced. Insulin resistance is a strong predictor of disease and mortality. Aging is ...
Association between exercise, cardiorespiratory fitness and change in insulin sensitivity
The ability of the body to manage blood sugar is referred to as insulin sensitivity. Reduced insulin sensitivity is both a risk factor and is involved in the pathogenesis of type-2 diabetes. Cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) ...
Cardiorespiratory fitness adaptations to exercise in sedentary men
Cardiorespiratory Fitness (CRF) classically measured by maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max), is a strong predictor of morbidity and mortality. However, there is substantial inter-individual variation in CRF response with ...
