Branched-chain and aromatic amino acids are predictors of insulin resistance in young adults

Würtz et al. Diabetes Care 2013;36(3):648-55

Branched-chain and aromatic amino acids are shown to predict worsening of insulin resistance.

These amino acids are known to predict future diabetes risk and this paper extends these finding to early stages in the progression towards insulin resistance, hyperglycemia and overt diabetes.
