Inhibiting 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11HSD1) has been proposed to prevent local regeneration of cortisol from cortisone, and thus enhance hepatic and adipose insulin sensitivity. In healthy men and patients with type 2 diabetes, the non-selective 11HSD inhibitor carbenoxolone enhances hepatic insulin sensitivity but, paradoxically, does not increase peripheral glucose disposal. In obesity, 11HSD1 activity and mRNA are increased in adipose biopsies. We tested ...
