Pattern of insulin delivery after intravenous glucose injection in man and its relation to plasma glucose disappearance.
Plasma insulin concentrations after pulse intravenous injection of glucose show an early rise, which declines towards the prestimulation level smoothly. This pattern is the effect of both continuingExpand
