The quantitative disposition of an intragastrically administered glucose load was studied in eight conscious 18-h fasted dogs using isotopic and arteriovenous (A-V) techniques. During the control period, the gut utilized 25% of the basal net hepatic glucose output (2.8 +/- 0.2 mg.kg-1.min-1). After glucose ingestion, 80% of the load was absorbed as glucose, 11% was converted across the gut to lactate and alanine, and 4% was oxidized to CO2. Two percent of the load remained in the gut 4 h after… CONTINUE READING
