Effects Of Creatine Supplementation On Glucose Tolerance And Insulin Sensitivity In Sedentary Healthy Males Undergoing Aerobic Training

Effect None
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 22
Sex Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Average
Notes for this study:
A loading phase of creatine followed by maintenance for 11 weeks in otherwise healthy sedentary males appears to reduce glucose following an oral glucose tolerance test (11-22%) with efficacy at 4 weeks and no further efficacy at 12 weeks; there was no significant influence on insulin sensitivity (assessed via HOMA) nor serum insulin.
