STAMP-2 was a cross-sectional, observational study of sedentary behaviour (SB) in 177 adults either with or at high risk of Type 2 diabetes (T2DM). Participants provided a fasting blood sample, then wore an accelerometer to measure total physical activity, an activPAL to measure sedentary behaviour, and a GPS receiver to measure spatial location for 1 week. The study found that total sedentary time was associated with higher fasting insulin levels and greater insulin resistance. In addition, time outdoors and level of moderate to vigorous physical activity was associated with lower insulin resistance.
