Role of Obesity and Inflammation Plasma concentrations of inflammatory mediators such as tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) are increased in insulin resistant states such as obesity and T2DM. Two mechanisms are possibly involved in this inflammatory state—(1) glucose and macro­ nutrient intake causes oxidative stress and inflammatory changes. Chronic overnutrition in obesity may thus be a proinflammatory state with oxidative stress; (2) the increased inflammatory mediators might interfere with insulin action by suppressing insulin signal transduction, in turn inhibiting the anti-inflammatory effect of insulin.

The C-peptide gets detached and insulin is formed. C-peptide level is an indicator of β cell function in patients who receive exogenous insulin. Insulin Receptor Insulin receptors are present in almost all cells of the body. It is a glycoprotein made of 2α and 2β subunits linked by disulfide bridges (Fig. 3). The α subunit which binds insulin is extracellular, while the β subunit extends from the cell membrane into the cell. The part of the β subunit, which extends into the cell has tyrosine kinase activity.
