Abstract: This study evaluated the relative contribution of insulin-dependent mechanisms vs. mechanisms independent on dynamic insulin for glucose intolerance induced by high-fat diet. C57BL/6J mice underwent a frequently sampled intravenous glucose tolerance test (1 g/kg glucose) at 1 wk and 1, 3, and 10 mo after initiation of a high-fat diet (58% fat; control diet 11% fat) to measure glucose effectiveness (SG) and disposition index (DI), i.e., insulin sensitivity (SI) times early or total insulin secretion. Glucose d…
