We tested whether acute alpha 2-blockade affects insulin secretion, glucose and fat metabolism, thermogenesis, and hemodynamics in humans. During a 5-h epinephrine infusion (50 ng.min-1.kg-1) in five volunteers, deriglidole, a selective alpha 2-receptor inhibitor, led to a more sustained rise in plasma insulin and C-peptide levels (+59 +/- 14 vs. +28 +/- 6,… (More)
