A recent study quantified insulin-mediated glucose uptake (IMGU) in 330 apparently healthy volunteers and compared the relationship between this value and measurements of WC and BMI.
In vivo studies, where muscle biopsies were serially taken at different time points during euglycemic hyperinsulinemic glucose clamp, revealed normal steady state insulin levels but reduced insulin mediated glucose uptake (IMGU) in PCOS women along with decrease in insulin mediated IRS-1 associated PI3K activity (19).
In contrast to in vivo studies, basal and IMGU was significantly high in the cultured myotubes from obese PCOS women (68).
