skeletal muscle insulin action, ongoing evidence points toward its systemic effect in other tissues, which, in turn, are also involved in blood glucose homeostasis. In this sense, exercise increases liver insulin sensitivity ( Hoene et al . 2009 ) reducing

.05). Exercise improves adipose tissue insulin sensitivity in FGF21KO mice Based on HOMA-IR values, FGF21KO mice were significantly more insulin-resistant than WT controls ( Fig. 1A ) and EX had a tendency ( P  = 0.112) to improve HOMA-IR in both genotypes
