The hepatic parasympathetic system is one of the major contributors for preserving insulin sensitivity in the postprandial state. Postprandial hepatic vagal control of whole-body glucose clearance and its effect on specific organs remains unknown. Our hypothesis is that, in the postprandial state, the hepatic parasympathetic nerves (HPN) are responsible for a considerable part of extra-hepatic tissue glucose clearance. Two groups of 9-week-old Sprague-Dawley rats were studied, comparing sham… CONTINUE READING
