Men more likely to be affected by sedentary lifestyle and sugary diet

Men are more likely to be adversely affected by a sedentary lifestyle and a sugar-sweetened diet, a study found. The researchers examined vascular insulin resistance in 36 young healthy men and women by having them reduce physical activity for 10 days, reducing the number of steps per day from 10,000 to 5,000. Participants also increased their intake of sugar-sweetened beverages to six cans of soda per day. The results showed that only in men, a sedentary lifestyle and high sugar intake led to insulin-stimulated reductions in leg blood flow and a drop in a protein called adropin, which regulates insulin sensitivity, It is an important biomarker of cardiovascular disease. The researchers suggest that young women can prevent vascular insulin resistance caused by an obese lifestyle. The study was published in the journal Endocrinology.
