beta-Cell function and glucose metabolism were studied in eight insulin-dependent diabetic recipients of combined segmental pancreas and kidney transplant with peripheral insulin delivery (Px), in eight nondiabetic kidney-transplant individuals (Kx), and in eight normal subjects (Ns) after three consecutive mixed meals. All subjects had normal fasting plasma glucose, but increased basal levels of C-peptide were demonstrated in the transplant groups (P < 0.05 relative to Ns). Postprandial… CONTINUE READING
