Validity of fasting indices for explaining sensitivity index was sex dependent

Endocrine Today;3/10/2008, Vol. 6 Issue 4, p20
The article reports on the sex-dependent differences observed in fasting indices. According to the article, the researchers compared results from minimal model analysis of the frequency sampled intravenous glucose tolerance test to homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) and fasting insulin. The article cites that the in pubertal boys, HOMA-IR and fasting insulin are correlated reasonably while in girls, the strength of the association was generally weaker, especially among insulin resistant participants.
