Insulin secretion, obesity, and potential behavioral influences: results from the Insulin Resistance Atherosclerosis Study (IRAS)



Insulin secretion, obesity, and potential behavioral influences: results from the Insulin Resistance Atherosclerosis Study (IRAS)



Diabetes/Metabolism Research Reviews 17(2): 137-145



This work was conducted to evaluate associations of insulin secretion with overall and central obesity, dietary fats, physical activity, and alcohol. A frequently sampled intravenous glucose tolerance test (FSIGT) was used to assess acute insulin response to glucose (AIR) and insulin sensitivity (S(I)) among adult participants (n=675 with normal, NGT; n=332 with impaired glucose tolerance, IGT) in the Insulin Resistance Atherosclerosis Study (IRAS). Disposition index (DI) was calculated as the sum of the log-transformed AIR and S(I) to reflect pancreatic compensation for insulin resistance. Obesity was measured as body mass index (kg/m(2), BMI) and central fat distribution by waist circumference (cm). Dietary fat intake (total, saturated, polyunsaturated, oleic acid), physical activity, and alcohol intake were assessed by standardized interview. In unadjusted analyses, BMI and waist were each positively correlated with AIR among NGTs (r=0.26 and 0.23, respectively; p<0.0001) but correlations were weaker among the IGTs (r=0.10, NS; r=0.13, p<0.05 for BMI and waist, respectively). BMI and waist were inversely correlated with DI among NGTs (r=-0.13 and -0.20, respectively; p<0.0001) and among IGTs (r=-0.20 and -0.19, respectively, p<0.0001). Dietary fat variables were positively related, and alcohol was inversely related, to AIR among NGTs (p<0.01) but not among IGTs. With all factors considered simultaneously in a pooled analysis of IGTs and NGTs, waist, but not BMI, was positively associated with AIR (p<0.001) and inversely associated with DI (p<0.01). None of the behavioral variables were independently related to either outcome. Among non-diabetic patients, central obesity appears to be related to higher insulin secretion, but to lower capacity of the pancreas to respond to the ambient insulin resistance.
