To determine the temporal sequence of pregnancy-induced changes in insulin action and secretion, awake midpregnant (11-12 days) and late pregnant (19-20 days) rats underwent a two-step euglycemic hyperinsulinemic or a hyperglycemic clamp study after a 24-h fast. During euglycemia, insulin-stimulated increments in glucose uptake and clearance in midpregnant(More)
Intensive insulin treatment during diabetic pregnancy is complicated by maternal hypoglycemia. To investigate whether pregnancy may contribute as an independent hypoglycemia risk factor, awake pregnant rats that were near term underwent stepped insulin hypoglycemic (3.4 and 2.3 mM) clamp studies in the fasted and nonfasted states. In the fasted state, the(More)
