The objective of this project is to examine the relationship between physical activity, fuel management, and glucose regulation using ambulatory monitoring methodologies and mathematical modeling of these physiological processes.
Studies using human volunteers will be conducted in which physical activity, diet, and perhaps other factors, will be altered to affect a change in glucose metabolism or metabolic fuel use. From this data, modeling techniques will be used to develop mathematical models that predict glucose, water, and metabolic fuel requirements of physically active humans.
