In diabetic patients, the expression of intestinal glucose transporters
has been reported to be 3- to 4-fold higher than healthy controls , and therefore, higher amount of glucose will be absorbed by these patients in a shorter period of time, leading to increased postprandial glycemia.

In terms of glucose transporter
(GLUT) defects, CSF glucose and blood glucose levels were normal (>50%), and the other metabolic investigations also gave normal results.

and insulin-signaling gene expression in mouse adipocytes.
Cinnamon extract and polyphenols affect the expression of tristetraprolin, insulin receptor, and glucose transporter

We also set out to understand the molecular mechanisms involving the activity of the insulin receptor (IR), the IR substrates 1 and 2 (IRS1/2), the phosphoinositol-3-kinase protein (PI3K), and protein kinase B (Akt/PKB), and the regulation of glucose transporter
isoform 4 (GLUT4) in response to acute and chronic resistance exercise.
