Abstract

The study shows that the interstitial glucose concentration in skeletal muscle is markedly decreased for several hours following a single exercise session. The decreased interstitial glucose concentration may serve to limit the rate of post-exercise muscle glucose uptake to a rate compatible with normal blood glucose levels and may also be speculated to have a positive long-term health implication by augmenting muscle insulin sensitivity.
