In 20 patients with acute renal failure and 11 normal persons the behaviour of the glucagon and insulin secretion was examined after administration of L-arginine. Under standard conditions the glucagon level was significantly higher in the acute renal insufficiency than in the normals. Increased glucagon levels could be stated in the anuric/oliguric as well as in the polyuric phase. After administration of L-arginine in the acute renal failure a significantly higher increase of the glucagon… Expand
