BACKGROUND/AIMS Central dopaminergic activity is probably linked to regulation of glucose and lipid metabolism and weight maintenance. The aim of our study was to evaluate the relationship between central dopaminergic activity measured using the apomorphine challenge test and metabolic parameters in healthy men. METHODS Forty-two healthy men (average age(More)
Subcutaneous apomorphine, a dopaminergic agonist, is used as a neuroendocrine probe for assessing central dopaminergic activity. The aim of our study was to test sublingual apomorphine for the same purpose. We administered sublingual apomorphine in a weight-dependent dose (0.033 mg/kg) to 42 healthy men. Prolactin and growth hormone levels were measured(More)
Our study compared total C-peptide secretion after administration of whey proteins and whey proteins in combination with glucose with results of classical tests assessing beta cell function in the pancreas of healthy individuals. Eight young, healthy (7 males, 1 female; aged 20-26 years), non-obese (BMI: 17-25.9 kg/m²) participants with normal glucose(More)
