OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of selective beta 1-blockade (atenolol and betaxolol) and nonselective beta-blockade (propranolol) on glucose turnover in subjects with insulin-dependent (type I) diabetes mellitus during moderate exercise. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Five subjects with type I diabetes were infused with insulin and then exercised for 1 h, after pretreatment with each of the three drugs or saline and, on a separate day, after withdrawal of insulin. Glucose turnover was measured… CONTINUE READING
