The participation of hepatic glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis to the glycemic changes promoted by exercise was investigated. For this purpose, we employed swimming rats (2.5% body weight extra load attached to the tail, at 24 degrees C) using a favorable condition to measure hepatic glycogenolysis (fed rats) and a favorable condition to measure hepatic gluconeogenesis (fasted rats). This experimental approach permits us to compare the contribution of hepatic glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis… CONTINUE READING
