BACKGROUND Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is an intestinal insulinotropic hormone that augments glucose-induced insulin secretion in patients with type 2 diabetes. It has also been proposed that a substantial component of the glucose-lowering effects of GLP-1 occurs because this hormone enhances insulin-mediated glucose disposal. However, interpretations of the studies have been controversial. This study determines the effect of GLP-1 on insulin-mediated glucose disposal in elderly patients… CONTINUE READING
