Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of body size on insulin-mediated, whole-body glucose uptake (M-value) in morbidly obese (MO) subjects, who have large amounts of fat mass. Furthermore, we aimed at verifying which surrogate insulin-sensitivity index can better substitute the euglycemic clamp values and whether the insulin secretion/insulin resistance index is meaningful also in MO subjects.
