To examine mechanisms of insulin resistance, nine patients (age 33 +/- 4 yr, body mass index 22 +/- 1 kg/m2) with acute bacterial or viral infections and in six matched normal subjects were studied. Endogenous glucose appearance (Ra), glucose disappearance (Rd), and recycling, the percentage of plasma lactate originating from plasma glucose, total glucose oxidation, and whole body and forearm muscle Rd were measured after an overnight fast in the basal state and during physiological… CONTINUE READING
