UNLABELLED To determine the effect of acute insulin withdrawal and its subsequent replacement on components of the insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-1 binding protein system and on circulating leptin levels in patients with type 1 diabetes. Seventeen patients (age 31 yr +/-10) with type 1 diabetes treated with continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (HbA1c 7.6% +/-1.0) were studied. The protocol consisted of two phases: acute insulin withdrawal of up to 8 h followed by a further 2-h period of… CONTINUE READING
