Peptide YY (PYY) is a recently discovered peptide found in the distal ileum and colon. It circulates in plasma and concentrations rise in malabsorptive conditions. The potential of PYY as an indicator of impaired carbohydrate digestion was studied in a pharmacological model of intestinal glucosidase inhibition. Thirteen type-2 diabetics on long-term treatment with the alpha-glucosidase inhibitor acarbose (3 × 100 mg per day) had test meals with and without acarbose 100 mg before and after the… CONTINUE READING
