Thyrotropin-releasing hormone-induced hyperglycemia: possible involvement of cholinergic receptors in the lateral hypothalamus.

The influence of the site of action of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) on the production of hyperglycemia was studied in rats by comparing the effectiveness of TRH administered by different routes. Administration of TRH (5 micrograms) into the lateral hypothalamus (LH) produced a hyperglycemia with a peak elevation of blood glucose of 140 mg/dl… CONTINUE READING
