It has been proposed that hyperinsulinaemia may cause or exacerbate insulin resistance. The present studies were undertaken to test this hypothesis in man. Glucose utilization, glucose production, and overall glucose metabolism at submaximally and maximally effective plasma insulin concentrations (∼80 and ∼1700 mU/l), and monocyte and adipocyte insulin(More)
1. Free amino acid concentrations in the plasma have been compared with those in liver and quadriceps muscle, in rats fed on diets containing 209 (control) and 31 (low-protein) g protein/kg. The effects of the low-protein diet on diurnal variations in these values were also measured. 2. In the plasma, the total amino acid concentration was significantly(More)
A total of 210 twenty twoday-old broiler chicks were used in this programme to investigale the performance, [ca\ intake, digestibility and visceral organ mass of broiler chicks fed with high level of olive pulp.supplemented with two antibiotics: streptomycin and tylosin. The two antibiotics were added to supply 150 nig/kg of the active ingredient. Chicks(More)
Dismounted military personnel operate in physically and psychologically demanding environments, with energy intake from combat rations often falling short of their requirements, leading to reductions in body weight and changes in body composition, which can impact both their health and performance. This review systematically investigated the effects of the(More)
To determine whether hyperinsulinaemia can cause insulin resistance in man and, if so, whether this occurs at a receptor or post-receptor site, nine normal volunteers were infused with insulin for 6 h at a rate (2 mU·kg-1·min-1) which resulted in steady-state plasma insulin concentrations of 140±13mU/l and four subjects were infused with saline (0.45%).(More)
1. The role of corticosteroids in determining which clinical features of protein-energy malnutrition develop on a deficient diet has been studied by the administration of cortisone acetate to experimentally malnourished rats fed ad lib. on a mixture containing 31 g protein/kg. 2. Daily administration of 1-25 mg cortisone acetate did not affect dietary(More)
