This research aimed to define the pathophysiological defects responsible for the elevated fasting plasma glucose (FPG) concentration and excessive rise in post-load plasma glucose observed in individuals with impaired fasting glucose (IFG). We used tracer techniques to quantify basal splanchnic (primarily hepatic) glucose uptake and glucose fluxes following… CONTINUE READING
