Ethanol-induced alterations of glucose tolerance, postglucose hypoglycemia, and insulin secretion in normal, obese, and diabetic subjects.

Abstract

Ethanol at an average blood concentration of 1 mg. per milliliter enhanced the immediate (first-phase) and prolonged (second-phase) insulin response to an intravenous glucose load in nonfasting normal human subjects. Simultaneously, the glucose disposal rate was increased and the postglucose hypoglycemia was accentuated, resulting in definite hypoglycemic… (More)
