Daytime variations in glucose tolerance in people with impaired glucose tolerance
To determine whether glucose tolerance varies throughout the day in people with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). We studied 15 healthy IGT, and 18 matched normal glucose tolerant (NGT) individuals. Blood samples were taken ...
Glucose homoeostasis in rats exposed to acute intermittent hypoxia
Aim: Chronic exposure to intermittent hypoxia commonly induces the activation of sympathetic tonus and the disruption of glucose homoeostasis. However, the effects of exposure to acute intermittent hypoxia (AIH) on glucose ...
Diabetes and experimental pregnancy in rats: Course of maternal blood glucose levels and its repercussions on the blood glucose levels and pancreas of newborn pups
The objective of the present investigation was to determine the course of maternal blood glucose levels in pregnant rats and its repercussions on the glucose levels and pancreas of their newborn pups. Diabetes was induced ...
Thermodynamic and Kinetic Studies of Glucose Mutarotation by Using a Portable Personal Blood Glucose Meter
(Slovensko Kemijsko DrustvoLjubljana, 2009)
Effects of acute heat exposure on respiratory metabolism and blood glucose in freshwater fishes, Prochilodus scrofa (curimbatá) and Cyprinus carpio (carp) acclimatized to tropical winter
1. 1. Routine oxygen consumption and blood glucose were determined from freshwater fishes, Prochilodus scrofa and Cyprinus carpio, exposed at high temperatures for 1 hr. 2. 2. Prochilodus scrofa had a significantly higher ...
Evaluation of the level of cortisol, capillary blood glucose, and blood pressure in response to anxiety of patients rehabilitated with complete dentures
Background: The aim was to analyze the levels of stress of edentulous patients through the state-trait anxiety inventory (STAI) and salivary flow through the visual analogue scale (VAS) xerostomia questionnaire, as well ...
Exercise at anaerobic threshold intensity and insulin secretion by isolated pancreatic islets of rats
To evaluate the effect of acute exercise and exercise training at the anaerobic threshold (AT) intensity on aerobic conditioning and insulin secretion by pancreatic islets, adult male Wistar rats were submitted to the ...
Uso do glicosímetro portátil para a mensuração da glicemia em potros neonatos da raça mangalarga marchador
This study aimed to evaluate the use of portable blood glucose meter to measure glucose levels in neonatal foals considering how to control the results measured by laboratory test (TL) determining thereby the blood glucose ...
HIPERTENSAO ARTERIAL EM PACIENTES OBESOS COM HIPERTROFIA CARDIACA. EFEITOS DO CAPTOPRIL SOBRE A SENSIBILIDADE A INSULINA E HORMONIO DE CRESCIMENTO
Purpose. To evaluate the effects of captopril (Cpt) on carbohydrate metabolism and growth hormone (GH) in adults hypertensive obese patients with normal (NGT) or impaired (IGT) glucose tolerance and left ventricular ...
