Insulin resistance, hyperglycemia, glucosuria, and galactosuria in intensively milk-fed calves: dependency on age and effects of high lactose intake.


Calves intensively fed milk replacers frequently develop postprandial insulin resistance, characterized by excessively elevated plasma insulin concentrations, hyperglycemia, and glucosuria. To test the hypothesis that insulin secretion and insulin-dependent dependent glucose metabolism are modified by age and carbohydrate intake, 20 male calves (Simmental x… (More)
