The fasting hypoglycemia (1.78 +/- 0.29 mmol/l) which develops in 48-h-old pigs is partially reversed (3.85 +/- 0.55 mmol/l) after gastric administration of long-chain triglycerides (LCT). The increase in blood glucose induced by LCT feeding was not secondary to a decreased glucose utilization because glucose disappearance rate increased in LCT-fed piglets but resulted from a twofold increase in glucose appearance. By using the crossover-plot technique, the stimulation of hepatic… CONTINUE READING
