Mitochondrial Function in Pediatric Obesity
Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:18th Dec 2007
This study evaluates a novel, non invasive, safe method for predicting insulin resistance and diabetes in children using a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) based technique to measure mitochondrial function. We propose to investigate mitochondrial function and glucose metabolism in obese and non-obese children in early, mid and late puberty.
