Increased glucose turnover and glucose cycling in acromegalic patients with normal glucose tolerance

Abstract

To characterize the diabetogenic effects of growth hormone, we simultaneously measured glucose turnover with 2-3H- and 6-3H-glucose in six acromegalic patients with normal fasting blood glucose and oral glucose tolerance tests. Eight healthy volunteers served as controls. All subjects were studied under both basal conditions and during glucose infusion (2… (More)
