Different effects of human and porcine insulin on hypoglycemia-induced abnormalities of brainstem sensory function.


Following a switch from porcine insulin (PI) to human insulin (HI), a subgroup of diabetic patients complained of unawareness of hypoglycemia. In the present study, a glucose clamp technique was used to assess changes in auditory evoked brainstem responses (ABR) during infusion of HI and PI (0.015 IU/kg/min) under conditions of euglycemia (about 5.00 mM… (More)
