Amylase/creatinine clearance ratio response to hyperglucagonemia in diabetes and obesity.

Hyperglucagonemia accompanies several disorders such as acute pancreatitis and diabetic ketoacidosis characterized by increased amylase/creatinine clearance ratio (ACCR). We tested the hypothesis that glucagon may be responsible for the augmental ACCR among diabetic and/or obese subjects. A constant glucagon infusion (15 ng/kg/min) was given to eight… CONTINUE READING
