The aim of the present experiments was to study the plasma glucose-insulin relationship in eu-, hypo- or hyperthyroid broiler chickens. None of the thyroid states modified the fasting plasma glucose and insulin levels. Hypothyroid chickens exhibited a normal glucose tolerance and a normal glucose-induced insulin release after oral glucose (2 g/kg body weight) administration compared to euthyroid chickens. In contrast, hyperthyroid chickens exhibited an improved glucose tolerance accompanied by… CONTINUE READING
