The aim of this study was to determine the extent to which a feto-placental glucose steal phenomenon contributes to the process of maternal metabolic adaptation to late pregnancy. Glucose metabolism was studied in virgin control, pregnant rats and virgin rats with a phlorizin-induced model of the feto-placental glucose steal phenomenon. Whole body glucose kinetics and glucose uptake into individual tissues were measured in anaesthetised rats basally and during hyperinsulinaemic euglycaemic… CONTINUE READING
