Mechanisms of fasting hypoglycemia and concomitant insulin resistance in insulinoma patients.

Abstract

To gain further insight into the pathogenesis of fasting hypoglycemia in patients with insulin-secreting adenoma of the pancreas, we studied seven patients affected by insulinoma (age, 42 +/- 7 years; body mass index [BMI], 27 +/- 2 kg/m2) and seven normal subjects. In insulinoma patients, hepatic glucose production (HGP) and glucose utilization (Rd) were… (More)
