The inhibitory action of free fatty acids on glucose transport, oxidation, and glycogen synthesis may be responsible for lipid-induced insulin resistance in humans.
High fat diets may promote the development insulin resistance and type-2 diabetes.
Free fatty acids are associated with insulin resistance and lipid accumulation in skeletal muscles.
Decreased plasma levels of free fatty acids are associated with low insulin resistance and high glucose uptake in obese diabetic and nondiabetic individuals.
