The relation of dietary factors and physical activity to hyperinsulinemia was examined in 389 men aged 70-89 years who participated in the Zutphen Elderly Study in 1990.
Information about the usual diet was obtained using a cross-check dietary history, and habitual physical activity was assessed using a validated questionnaire.
Known and newly diagnosed diabetic patients were excluded from this study, since serum insulin and C-peptide levels are indicators of insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia in non-diabetics only.
Insulin levels during the oral glucose tolerance test were lowest in men with the highest physical activity.
