Glucose and free fatty acid turnover in normal subjects and in diabetic patients before and after insulin treatment

Turnover rates of glucose and free fatty acids were measured, using3H-glucose and14C-1-palmitic acid as tracers, in insulin-requiring diabetic patients at presentation and after insulin treatment. Correlations were sought with rates of substrate oxidation, determined independently from respiratory exchange, and with plasma hormone concentrations. The rates… CONTINUE READING
