The extent and significance of spontaneous glucagon secretion in the immediate postnatal period were investigated in groups of normal infants studied cross-sectionally and longitudinally. Arginine-and alanine-stimulated glucagon secretion was also studied. Plasma glucagon concentrations were correlated with prevailing glucose and insulin concentrations. The characteristic fall in blood glucose, reaching a nadir within hours of birth, was associated with a significant increase in glucagon… CONTINUE READING
