Metabolic effects of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF) in normal and genetically diabetic mice.

Abstract

The acute metabolic effects of glucose tolerance factor (GTF), the biologically active form of trivalent chromium, were studied in normal and genetically diabetic (db/db) mice. A single intraperitoneal injection of GTF significantly reduced the nonfasting plasma glucose level in normal mice by 38 per cent, and in diabetic mice by 14 to 29 per cent. Time… (More)
