Effect of short- and long-term experimental hyperthyroidism on plasma glucose level and insulin secretion during an intravenous glucose load and on insulin binding, insulin receptor kinase activity, and insulin action in adipose tissue.


Glucose disposal, insulin secretion, and insulin action in adipose tissue were measured in rats treated for 10 or 30 days with high doses of thyroxine (T4). Acutely induced hyperthyroidism produced a high rate of glucose disposal after an intravenous glucose tolerance test (IVGTT), accompanied by a high glucose-stimulated insulin secretion. In addition, in… (More)
