Abstract

Plasma total catecholamine levels determined by a double isotope derivative method were increased approximately 4 fold over basal 3 min following an iv 20 g glucose pulse. This response appeared one min after the insulin response and raises the possibility that endogenous catecholamine secretion may exert a damping effect upon acute insulin secretion during iv glucose tolerance testing.
