Systemic and local adrenergic regulation of muscle glucose utilization during hypoglycemia in healthy subjects.

Abstract

Adrenergic responses are crucial for hypoglycemic recovery. Epinephrine increases glucose production, lipolysis, and peripheral insulin resistance as well as blood flow and glucose delivery. Sympathetic activation causes vasoconstriction and reduces glucose delivery. To determine the effects of alpha- and beta-adrenergic activity on muscle glucose uptake… (More)
