). Hyperinsulinaemia has been causally linked to the onset of diabetes in the early stages of the insulin resistance and in type 2 diabetes mellitus ( Corkey 2012 , Templeman et al. 2017 ), negatively affecting insulin-sensitive tissues such as liver, adipose and

Insulin resistance and lipid metabolism Obesity and diabetes are metabolic conditions of increasingly widespread significance to modern populations. The global scale and gravity of their impacts on general health, life expectancy and quality

-deficient mice exhibited resistance to diet-induced obesity and insulin insensitivity through the modulation of inflammation, whereas adipocytes exposed to PGRN have increased susceptibility to be insulin-resistant and those effects can be normalized with

macrophages and T cells that infiltrate adipose tissue stimulate inflammation, which is thought to alter adipose tissue function, leading to metabolic disorders and systemic insulin resistance ( Olefsky & Glass 2010 , Sun et al . 2012 ). Various

Introduction Insulin resistance, a hallmark of obesity and fundamental cause of type 2 diabetes, is characterized by a diminished ability of insulin to regulate glucose homeostasis in insulin-sensitive organs including liver, skeletal muscle, and

Introduction Normal human pregnancy is characterized by mild fasting hypoglycemia, postprandial hyperglycemia, and hyperinsulinemia ( Cunningham et al . 2010 ). These responses are consistent with a pregnancy-induced state of insulin resistance

Introduction Insulin action and linear growth are intimately linked, with crosstalk between insulin action and growth hormone/IGF1 signalling at multiple levels in liver and other tissues. This is attested to by the insulin resistance reported in

Introduction Excess glucocorticoid (GC) production (Cushing's syndrome) induces obesity and insulin resistance via activation of intracellular GC receptor (GR; Rizza et al . 1982 , Friedman et al . 1993 ). The GR belongs to a cytoplasmic nuclear
