The relationship between serum concentrations of glucose, insulin and glucagon during the first two days of life was studied in healthy newborns. The first capillary blood sample was obtained at 3-15 h of age (median 6 h; day 0) and a second sample approximately 24 h later (day 1). Serum glucose concentrations in the first sample averaged 2.1 +/- 0.07 mmol… CONTINUE READING
