Targeting metabolic and vascular health with high intensity exercise training in type 2 diabetes
Associate Professor Nathan Johnson
Study: Novel Exercise Therapies for Type 2 Diabetes (HIIT Diabetes)
Recent advances in non-invasive imaging techniques have increased the capacity for human research on human pancreas fat (1). A “fatty pancreas” may contribute significantly to the underlying cardiovascular and metabolic dysfunction observed in obesity and related type 2 diabetes (2,3), including beta cell dysfunction (4,5), and diet intervention alone or in combination with bariatric surgery, may reduce pancreas fat and improve pancreatic function (6-9).
This standard operating procedure (SOP) describes the instructions for analysing spectra obtained from the pancreas by localised proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS) scanning for participants in the Novel Exercise Therapies for Type 2 Diabetes (HIIT Diabetes) research trial.
