Abstract

INSULIN RESISTANCE (IR) IS A GROWING PROBLEM IN THE UNITED STATES. EXERCISE IS AN EFFECTIVE TREATMENT IN THE MANAGEMENT OF IR THROUGH ENHANCED INSULIN SENSITIVITY, INCREASED SKELETAL MUSCLE GLUCOSE UPTAKE, AND IMPROVED B-CELL FUNCTION. ADDITIONALLY, EXERCISE MAY POSITIVELY MODIFY COMORBIDITIES OFTEN ASSOCIATED WITH IR.
