To investigate the influence of dietary manipulation on in vivo glucose metabolism, we pair fed normal rats for 10 days with one of three diets: 1) high protein-low carbohydrate (Hi-PN) (n = 20); 2) intermediate protein (I-PN) (n = 11); and 3) low protein-high carbohydrate (Lo-PN) (n = 18). Fasting glucose, postmeal plasma glucose, and insulin concentrations were as follows: 118 +/- 2 mg/dl, 138 +/- 2 mg/dl, and 4.0 +/- 0.2 ng/ml in Hi-PN; 111 +/- 3 mg/dl, 147 +/- 3 mg/dl, and 5.1 +/- 0.3 ng/ml… CONTINUE READING
