Abstract :

Gender differences in pancreatic insulin secretory and whole body insulin sensitivity responses to an intravenous carbohydrate (CHO) load and metabolic responses were investigated to exercise after both intravenous and oral CHO loads. Results suggest that moderate exercise performed in the postprandial state presents a similar challenge in the ability of healthy, untrained men and women to perform exercise without a substantial decline in plasma glucose concentration below fasting values.
