Clinical trial: Effects of Inositol on insulin-resistance in overweight children

Brief Summary:

Inositol in involved in the insulin pathway. In literature it has been demonstrated to improve insulin sensitivity and ovarian function in women affected by PCOS.

In a preliminary study conducted on obese children between 7 and 15 years, the investigators have demonstrated that Inositol administration (Myo-inositol 1100 mg + D-Chiro-inositol 27,6 mg + Folic Acid 400 μg) before a Glucose Oral Tolerance Test reduces the increase of insulin levels, particularly in subjects with basal insulin ≥ 15 uU/ml.

So the aim of this study is to evaluate the potential therapeutic effect of inositol, as non-pharmacologic agent, in preventing tipe II diabetes in children.
