Resistance Training

Firing up the liver's fat metabolism staves off beginnings of diabetes

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: Sweating and straining through a half-hour on the stair climber rouses the heart, but getting the liver to work harder might be crucial for preventing diabetes. A new study reveals that goading the liver to burn more fat rescues rats from insulin resistance, a defect in sugar processing that usually heralds the disease. The results could help researchers craft drugs to avert diabetes.
