Table 5 Correlations between VO 2peak and glycemic control/ insulin resistance with (Panel A) (n=51) and without (Panel B) (n=86) exercise-induced ischemia

From: Insulin levels and HOMA index are associated with exercise capacity in patients with type 2 diabetes and coronary artery disease

Panel A HbA1c (%) Glucose (mmol/L) Insulin$(pmol/L) HOMA2-IR
VO2peak (mL/kg/min) r = -0.026 r = -0.059 r = -0.339 r = -0.430
p = 0.858 p = 0.683 p = 0.021 p = 0.003
Panel B     
VO2peak (mL/kg/min) r = -0.172 r = -0.180 r = -0.181 r = -0.276
p = 0.116 p = 0.102 p = 0.155 p = 0.014
