We investigated the 24-hour mean blood glucose and serum insulin (IRI), C peptide (C pep) and glucagon concentrations before (pre) and after (post) continued treatment with octreotide (100 mcg three time daily by s.c. injection) in a woman, 68 years old, affected by a nine years long benign insulinoma. The blood pool to dose 24-hour mean glucose and all hormone concentrations was obtained by equal quantities of blood samples taken every 2-hour over 24-hour. The IRI, C pep, glucagon, glucose… CONTINUE READING
