Low level activity thresholds for changes in NMR biomarkers and genes in high risk subjects for Type 2 Diabetes

Herzig et al. Scientific reports 2017;7:11267

This paper investigates associations between physical activities and changes in skeletal muscle gene expressions in subjects with high risk for type 2 diabetes performing a 3-month physical activity intervention.

Results found that physical activity was associated with beneficial biomarker changes in a factor containing several VLDL and HDL subclasses and lipids in principal component analysis.
