Dexamethasone-induced increase in the rate of appearance in plasma of gut-derived glucose following an oral glucose load in rats.

Abstract

Glucocorticoids are known to impair oral glucose tolerance and to induce insulin resistance. It has also been reported that glucocorticoids stimulate absorption of glucose, water, and electrolytes from the gut. The aim of the present study was to determine if dexamethasone treatment increased the rate of appearance in plasma of gut-derived glucose. Glucose… (More)
