A variety of biochemical tests have been proposed to distinguish between those with and those without pituitary tumors. The aims of this study were: firstly to examine these tests to assess their(More)
1. Glucose kinetics were assessed in seven normal adult male subjects by an intravenous bolus technique with the use of a non-radioactive isotopically labelled preparation, [6,6-2H]glucose, as tracer. Tracer enrichment in plasma was assessed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. For comparison five subjects also received a simultaneous intravenous bolus(More)

Circulating intermediary metabolite and hormone concentrations were measured at intervals over 24 h in five uraemic patients before starting dialysis and after 3 months' treatment with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) and in 13 non-uraemic normal controls. Fasting and postprandial glucose concentrations were significantly raised in uraemic(More)
Prolactin secretion and biological activity have been investigated in 20 females with persistent idiopathic galactorrhoea who had normal resting serum prolactin levels at presentation. Results were compared with those in 34 normal controls. Hyperprolactinaemia, which was persistent in one and intermittent in the other, developed in two patients over an(More)
