Peripheral Insulin Sensitivity [ Time Frame: Four weeks ]
We will measure peripheral insulin sensitivity by determining the rate of glucose uptake
Same as current
No Changes Posted
  • Hepatic insulin sensitivity [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Endogenous glucose production will be used to determine hepatic insulin sensitivity
  • Muscle mitochondrial function [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Muscle mitochondrial structure by electron microscopy and function by enzymatic assays.
  • Inflammatory and Anti-inflammatory Markers in adipose tissue [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    Inflammatory Markers: PAI-1, IL-6, TNF-a, iNOS Anti-inflammatory Markers: Adiponectin, Arginase 1 Will be measured in plasma
  • Neuropsychological assessment [ Time Frame: pre and post clamp studies (4 weeks) ]
    Neuropsychological testing will be performed to assess cognitive function.
Same as current

Effect of Resveratrol on Age-related Insulin Resistance and Inflammation in Humans
Effect of Resveratrol on Age-related Insulin Resistance and Inflammation in Humans
The purpose of this research is to study the effects of a medication called resveratrol on the body's response to insulin (a hormone to control blood sugar), on inflammation and/or on specific cells and processes in fat tissue, and on skeletal muscle metabolism and on brain function.
