From: Fasting plasma chenodeoxycholic acid and cholic acid concentrations are inversely correlated with insulin sensitivity in adults

Figure 1

Spearman correlation of plasma bile acids concentrations and insulin sensitivity in healthy controls (n = 14) (black triangle), type 2 diabetic (black square) (n = 20) and obese (white diamond) (n = 22) subjects. Plasma chenodeoxycholic acid (CDCA) and cholic acid (CA) concentrations were measured by GC-MS analysis. Insulin sensitivity was assessed by the rate of infused glucose necessary to maintain euglycaemia during infusion of insulin (GIR: glucose infusion rate). In the center 2 (A), the insulin infusion rate was 75 mU/m2, while it was 40 mU/m2 in the center 1 (B).
