Project description

Optimization of the clinical benefits of exercise intervention in patients with IR and T2DM is necessary. Therefor, we will evaluate the possible differences in respons to continuous versus interval training, in fasted versus postprandial condition, in patients with IR and T2DM. We will focus on clinical and fundamental aspects in energy metabolism, with specific interest on fat metabolism.
