The effect of pregnancy on the course of experimental chemical diabetes (CD) has been studied in the rat. Glucose tolerance tests (0.5 g/kg i.v.) have been performed serially in the virgin state (2 mo), late pregnancy (20.5 day of gestation), and 1 and 2 mo after delivery, in control and in CD female rats. During gestation in the controls basal plasma glucose is decreased, and plasma glucose levels after glucose load, and also lower than levels found in the virgin state. Glucose tolerance is… CONTINUE READING
