Myocardial infarction generates de novo insulin resistance in patients and mice
Dutta lab has found that myocardial infarction generates de novo insulin resistance in patients and mice. It is well accepted that insulin resistance precipitates myocardial infarction. In a retrospective study, we found that only 24% of patients are diabetic at the...
