What changes in the plasma membrane could result in an increase in the rate of glucose uptake?

I put down an increase of ATP, but i'm not sure, and it needs two reasons.

Assuming this is under physiological conditions (as opposed to a lab situation), consider the membrane proteins involved in glucose transport - the density of these proteins fluctuates depending on the relative concentrations of glucose inside and outside the cell which will alter the rate of transport.

Rate of respiration? the more respiration occurring the more the Glycolysis process occurs, hence causing a cell to take up more glucose to use it in order to produce ATP. Or an increase in the digestion of carbohydrates/fat in the diet causing more insulin to be secreted hence causing an increase in the up take of glucose.
