Independent effects of circulating glucose, insulin and NEFA on cardiac triacylglycerol accumulation and myocardial insulin resistance in a swine model.
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: Cardiac steatosis and myocardial insulin resistance elevate the risk of cardiac complications in obesity and diabetes. We aimed to disentangle the effects of circulating glucose, insulin and NEFA on myocardial triacylglycerol (TG) content and myocardial glucose uptake. METHODS: Twenty-two pigs were stratified according to four protocols: low NEFA + low insulin (nicotinic acid), high NEFA + low insulin (fasting) and high insulin + low NEFA ± high glucose (hyperinsulinaemia-hyp...Expand abstract
