It has been shown that exercise induces a marked increase in plasma and muscle follistatin and irisin.(2)-(4) Follistatin expression changes in both the muscle and fat of diabetic rats and can be modulated by exercise.(5) Concentrations of irisin increase significantly after exercise in both mice and humans, and irisin levels in . . .
