Fasting metabolite and hormonal levels were studied prospectively in pancreatectomized dogs who had received grafts of their own pancreas. The results were compared with similarly diabetic animals who received exogenous insulin pumped intravenously either peripherally or portally. All animals were studied for 48-91 wk after pancreatectomy. In the autotransplanted animals, the fasting levels of glucose, lactate, pyruvate, alanine, pancreatic glucagon, insulin, gastric inhibitory peptide, and… CONTINUE READING
