Researchers using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy have identified 20 metabolites that are linked to insulin resistance. The study, published in Diabetes, analyzed the metabolic profiles of 7,098 people. "Metabolic signatures extending beyond obesity and lipid abnormalities reflected the degree of insulin resistance evidenced in young, normoglycemic adults with sex-specific fingerprints," the researchers wrote.
