Effects of varying doses of glucose, epinephrine, cortisone and thyroxine on plasma insulin levels were assessed. Epinephrine, cortisone and thyroxine were injected intravenously daily for 7 days and then blood samples collected for plasma insulin and blood sugar estimations. Epinephrine and cortisone raised the blood sugar and plasma insulin levels as evidenced by the net insulin production and assimilation coefficient. Thyroxine did not appear to influence blood sugar levels though the plasma insulin levels were raised.
