It has been shown that low values of insulin sensitivity have been related to metabolic diseases. Exercise prescription is crucial to prevent low insulin sensitivity in general population, and athletes are good physiological model. If this assumption is correct, examine insulin sensitivity in elite athletes should reflect the positive effect of exercise on insulin sensitivity. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of regular exercise on insulin sensitivity estim...

Balance between pro- and anti- inflammatory cytokines is necessary for the physiological functioning of the immune system. A chronic systemic inflammation is one of the causes of insulin resistance in obesity.The aim of this study was to investigate the pro-inflammatory cytokines and visfatin response to an single bout acute exercise in athletes and non-athletes, as well as the possible relationship pro-inflammatory cytokines with body composition and in...
