Plasma glucose, insulin, and glucagon before and after long-term overfeeding in identical twins.

Abstract

Plasma glucose, insulin, and glucagon levels were measured before and after long-term overfeeding (4.2 MJ/d during a 100-day period) in 24 lean adults (12 pairs of monozygotic twins). Fasting plasma glucose, insulin, and glucagon were significantly increased by overfeeding. During a 75-g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), no major alteration in glucose… (More)
