D-chiro-inositol and Insulin Resistance: An Allosteric Point of View

WithJoseph Larner

This review is centered on our own research and is not meant in any way to minimize contributions from other laboratories. These laboratories have studied mechanisms of insulin resistance from different points of view resulting in the extensive literature on this subject. Clearly, insulin resistance in animal models and humans is multi-factorial in nature and beyond the scope of a single review. For example, contributions from many other authors have been collected in a volume devoted to this subject and detailed in reference [1].
