A Study in Normal Rats Using Chronic In Vivo Glucose Infusions


We have proposed that chronic hyperglycemia alters the ability of glucose to modulate insulin secretion, and have now examined the effects of different levels of hyperglycemia on B cell function in normal rats using chronic glucose infusions. Rats weighing 220-300 g were infused with 0.45% NaCl or 20, 30, 35, or 50% glucose at 2 ml/h for 48 h, which raised… (More)
