Short-and long-term glucocorticoid treatment enhances insulin signalling in human subcutaneous adipose tissue

Article English OPEN
Gathercole, LL; Morgan, SA; Bujalska, IJ; Stewart, PM; Tomlinson, JW;

Background: Endogenous or exogenous glucocorticoid (GC) excess (Cushing's syndrome) is characterized by increased adiposity and insulin resistance. Although GCs cause global insulin resistance in vivo, we have previously shown that GCs are able to augment insulin action... View more
