Amino acid profiles of young adults differ by sex, body mass index and insulin resistance

Amino acid profiles of young adults differ by sex, body mass index and insulin resistance Background and aimsAn increase in plasma branched-chain amino acids is associated with a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. However, little is known about the basal plasma amino acid concentrations in young adults. Our aim was to determine the plasma amino acid profiles of young adults and to evaluate how these profiles were modified by sex, body mass index (BMI) and insulin resistance (IR). http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nutrition, Metabolism and Cardiovascular Diseases Elsevier

Abstract

Background and aimsAn increase in plasma branched-chain amino acids is associated with a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. However, little is known about the basal plasma amino acid concentrations in young adults. Our aim was to determine the plasma amino acid profiles of young adults and to evaluate how these profiles were modified by sex, body mass index (BMI) and insulin resistance (IR).
