The human body obtains energy via breakdown of macronutrients, carbohydrates, lipids and proteins. The resulting sugars, fatty acids and amino acids can be oxidised via several metabolic pathways under different metabolic circumstances. Marieke Schooneman investigates acylcarnitines in plasma and insulin sensitive tissues in fasted, fed and a high fat diet (HFD)-induced, insulin resistant state.
