Glucose production and utilization in children with glycogen storage disease type I.

Glucose turnover rates were estimated with [2H2]glucose in five children with glycogen storage disease type I (GSD I) during sequential withdrawal of an infusion of glucose to determine whether their hypoglycemia was the result of decreased glucose production or increased rates of glucose utilization. Plasma glucose concentrations were 78 +/- 5 mg/dl during… CONTINUE READING
