Chronic hyperglycemia and insulin concentrations in fetal lambs.

Insulin concentrations were measured in 20 chronically instrumented fetuses of 10 sheep with alloxan-induced chronic hyperglycemia and 10 control sheep to examine if the hyperglycemia resulted in high fetal insulin concentration. Additionally, in six neonatal lambs of three chronically hyperglycemic ewes and three control sheep, insulin concentrations were… CONTINUE READING
