It is widely recognized that insulin resistance is an increasing problem in children and adolescents. The usual mechanism of obesity is present, but other mechanisms may also contribute. The three talks in this session focus on novel mechanisms of early insulin resistance including intrauterine and hormonal influences, as well as emerging information on the unique insulin resistance in type 1 diabetes.
