Background: Muscular strengthening activity (MSA) has been shown to be inversely associated with insulin resistance (IR). The associations between quartiles of the homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) and self-reported MSA in a nationally representative sample of euglycemic U.S. adults were examined.
Methods: Sample included adult participants (≥20 years of age [n=2,543]) from the 1999-2004 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). HOMA-IR was categorized into quartiles based on every 25th percentile. No MSA was the dependent variable.
Results: Following adjustment for covariates, those with HOMA-IR values in third (p
Conclusions: Having a higher HOMA-IR value is associated with greater odds of reporting no MSA in euglycemic U.S. adults.
