Postprandial Levels of Branch Chained and Aromatic Amino Acids Associate with Fasting Glycaemia

Table 4

Robust linear regression of HOMA-IR clustered on participant ID (), adjusted for age and sex. Metabolites are overnight fasting plasma concentrations and 180-minute postprandial AUC in 21 individuals at four different occasions. Beta values reflect increment of HOMA-IR per standardized unit of DMAA. CI: confidence interval.
