Diabetes (DM) shortens lifespan, an impact that is not fully explained by traditional cardiovascular (CV) risk factors. Functional Exercise Capacity (FEC) is a universal predictor of CV and all-cause mortality and it is decreased in people with diabetes. The overall goal of our combined basic and clinical research program is to understand and treat impaired FEC in DM to prevent premature mortality. New data from our lab indicate that: Oxygen delivery uniquely limits in vivo muscle mitochondrial...
