Acute hyperglycemia is known to upregulate mitochondrial function which in turn increases oxidative metabolism [1,2]. Obesity is associated to impaired glucose metabolism, mitochondrial dysfunction and impaired oxidative metabolism [3,4]. Then, this study aimed to non-invasively evaluate differences in oxidative metabolism in individuals with obesity compared to normal-weight using the near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and vascular occlusion (VOT) technique (NIRS-VOT) during hyperglycemia.

Sixteen normal-weight individuals (BMI 21.3Β±1.7 kg/m2) and thirteen individuals with obesity (BMI 34.4Β±2.0 kg/m2) were submitted to five vascular occlusion tests (VOT) (pre, 30, 60, 90 and 120 min after glucose ingestion). Oxygen utilization was estimated from the area under the curve of the deoxyhemoglobin [HHb] signal during occlusion (AUCocc). Muscle reperfusion was derived from the area above the curve (AACrep) after cuff release.

The AUCocc of the normal-weight individuals increased from 15732 Β± 2344 Β΅M.s at Pre to 18930Β±3226 Β΅M.s (P<0.05) at 90 minutes after glucose ingestion. The AUCocc decreased significantly from 14695Β±3341 Β΅M.s at Pre to 11273Β±1825 Β΅M.s (P<0.05) and 11360 Β± 1750 Β΅M.s (P<0.05) at 30 and 60 min, respectively, after glucose ingestion. The AUCrep decreased significantly from 6450Β±765 Β΅M.s at Pre to 4830Β±963 Β΅M.s (P<0.05) at 60 min and to 4210Β±595 Β΅M.s (P<0.01) at 90 min in normal-weight individuals after glucose ingestion.

This study showed in vivo and noninvasively differences in the oxidative metabolism of skeletal muscle in individuals with obesity compared to their lean counterparts during hyperglycemia.
