The rate of appearance (Ra) of glucose in plasma and the contribution of gluconeogenesis were quantified in normal pregnant women early ( approximately 10 wk) and late ( approximately 34 wk) in gestation. Their data were compared with those of normal nonpregnant women. Glucose Ra was measured using the [U-13C]glucose tracer dilution method. Gluconeogenesis was quantified by the appearance of 2H on carbon 5 and 6 of glucose after deuterium labeling of body water pool. Weight-specific glucose Ra… CONTINUE READING
