Figure 24 depicts exemplary spectra of TA (a) and SOL (b) of a 34-year-old male insulin sensitive subject with very low IMCL (left row), and a 32-year-old male insulin resistant subject with high IMCL content (right row). 69 studied a group of 23 normal weight non-diabetic adults without family history of diabetes and found a significant negative correlation between IMCL of soleus muscle and insulin sensitivity, but no relation between IMCL and BMI, age, and fasting plasma concentrations of triglycerides.

1. 5 T whole body imager (Magnetom Vision, Siemens, Erlangen, Germany). The circularly polarized extremity coil of the manufacturer was used as combined transmitter/receiver coil. Subjects were in supine position with the most extended part of the right lower leg in the centre of the coil. For follow-up measurements, accurate repositioning was guaranteed by marking the exact localization of the leg inside the coil. Reproducibility of the voxels could also be controlled by the individual unambiguous macroscopic fatty septa in the recorded 48 J.

Clamp examinations were performed in most of the studies in order to correlate the NMR data with the individual GIR. 3. Relation between IMCL content and insulin sensitivity To gain further insight into the mechanisms involved in defective insulinstimulated glucose uptake in skeletal muscle of insulin-resistant subjects, the possible role of IMCL in the pathogenesis of skeletal muscle insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus was explored by comparing insulin sensitivity (GIR) and IMCL content of insulin-resistant and insulin-sensitive offsprings of patients with type 2 diabetes.
