Dr Solomon’s main research focus is to understand how various metabolic and hormonal pathways are impaired as a direct consequence of high blood glucose levels (a process known as glucotoxicity). Because the beneficial effect of physical exercise is highly variable in individuals with high blood glucose, his group is also trying to determine the effects of glucotoxicity on the adaptations to physical exercise in type 2 diabetes. Ultimately, his goal is to optimize the use of physical exercise for improving blood glucose control in patients with type 2 diabetes.
