Recent studies have suggested that insulin action is reduced during puberty in normal children. To determine whether such resistance leads to excessive insulin secretion, we used the hyperglycemic clamp technique to produce a standard hyperglycemic stimulus (125 mg/dl above fasting levels for 120 minutes) in 9 preadolescent and 14 adolescent healthy children and in 14 normal adults. Fasting plasma insulin and C-peptide concentrations were higher in adolescents than in preadolescents and adults… CONTINUE READING
