Although, in many respects and from a metabolic point of view, obesity and AN are clearly two opposite pathological conditions, the available data concerning insulin sensitivity in these two syndromes are not so obviously opposite. Indeed, whereas everybody is convinced that obesity is characterized by an increased insulin resistance, the papers reporting insulin sensitivity parameters in AN contain some apparently contradictory results. The observations of simultaneously low fasting blood glucose and plasma-insulin levels in anorectic patients could suggest increased insulin sensitivity in AN. However, if this is the case, it would be present despite other metabolic and hormonal changes (increased plasma concentrations of free fatty acids, cortisol, and growth hormone) which are known factors of insulin resistance. During an oral glucose-tolerance test, an impaired glucose-tolerance occurring despite sustained insulin response to glucose is usually found in anorectic patients before treatment; these abnormalities are, at least partially, reversed after successful refeeding. From these results, such conclusive, if indirect, evidence exists for relative insulin insensitivity in untreated AN. Similar results were initially reported with the intravenous glucose-tolerance test. Typically, the coefficient of glucose assimilation K was reduced in anorectic patients before treatment and increased after realimentation. This seemed to occur despite a relative increase in insulin response to glucose, which again may be related to insulin resistance in these undernourished subjects. However, more recent data demonstrated that the early insulin response is significantly lower in anorectic patients than in controls and that more than half of these patients have normal glucose-tolerance despite decreased peripheral plasma insulin levels. These latter observations, on the contrary, suggest an increased insulin sensitivity, at least in some patients with AN. Only the recently developed minimal model method allows us to discriminate between changes in insulin secretion and action after intravenous glucose injection and thus to infer accurately the sensitivity of the tissues to insulin. Unfortunately, this technique has not been applied to anorectic patients, until now, to solve the controversy. The simplest way to assess the action in vivo of insulin is to perform an intravenous insulin-tolerance test. However, the initial findings with this test, which showed exaggerated fall in plasma-glucose values and delayed return to basal levels after intravenous injection of insulin in AN, do not necessarily mean increased insulin sensitivity in these self-starved patients.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS) [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 46 (1 ULg)

The present study aimed at 1) investigating the effect of a combined insulin + glipizide treatment on the metabolic control (HbA1c levels) and insulin requirements (Biostator assessment) in ten non-obese Type-II diabetic patients with recent secondary failure to sulfonylureas; and 2) characterizing the relative contributions of changes in endogenous insulin secretion (C-peptide response) and insulin sensitivity (insulin-induced glucose disposal in clamped conditions) to this effect. The patients were treated in a randomized cross-over order with either insulin alone or insulin + glipizide (3 X 10 mg/day) during two periods averaging 6 weeks each. Mean HbA1c levels were similar in both experimental conditions (8.2 +/- 0.6 vs 7.9 +/- 0.6%, NS). In fact, during the combined therapy, HbA1c levels decreased in five subjects (from 8.6 +/- 0.7 to 7.1 +/- 0.5%; 'responder'), but not in the five others ('non-responders'); the 20-h Biostator insulin infusion was significantly decreased in the responders (29%; P less than 0.05), but not in the non-responders. Basal (0.271 +/- 0.086 vs 0.086 +/- 0.017 nmol/l; P less than 0.05) and post-glucagon (0.468 +/- 0.121 vs 0.180 +/- 0.060 nmol/l; P less than 0.05) C-peptide plasma levels were significantly higher in the responders than in the non-responders; in addition, glipizide significantly increased basal C-peptide concentrations in the responders only (+68%; P less than 0.05).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS) [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 14 (0 ULg)

Insulin-stimulated glucose disposal was investigated using the euglycemic hyperinsulinemic glucose clamp technique in six women with anorexia nervosa (27.3 +/- 4.9 yr old; weight, 38.8 +/- 6.6 kg) and compared to results obtained in six normal women (22.6 +/- 1.2 yr old; weight, 58 +/- 2.5 kg) and seven obese women (26.8 +/- 7.7 yr old; weight, 92.5 +/- 13.8 kg). The glucose clamp was performed for 2 h using the Biostator and a continuous insulin infusion of 100 mU kg-1 h-1. Plasma levels of insulin were determined at 30-min intervals. Plasma levels of glucagon, FFA, glycerol, 3-hydroxy-butyrate, and alanine were measured basally. Blood glucose levels were similar in normal subjects and anorectic patients; they were slightly but significantly higher in the obese patients. The indices of insulin sensitivity measured were the MCR of glucose and the ratio of glucose infused to insulin infused (G/I). They were very similar in anorectic subjects [MCR, 13.5 +/- 2.4 (+/- SEM) ml kg-1 min-1; G/I, 5.2 +/- 0.9 mg/mU) and normal subjects (MCR, 13.5 +/- 1.7 ml kg-1 min-1; G/I, 5.2 +/- 0.4 mg/mU), but were significantly reduced in obese patients (MCR, 5.1 +/- 0.8 ml kg-1 min-1; G/I, 2.6 +/- 0.3 mg/mU; P less than 0.0025). Differences in plasma insulin among the three groups were not statistically significant. Plasma alanine levels were higher in anorectic than in normal or obese subjects, suggesting defective gluconeogenesis. Thus, insulin-stimulated glucose disposal is normal in patients with anorexia nervosa, a finding that contrasts with the previously reported increase in erythrocyte insulin receptors in this disease.

In order to evaluate the metabolic consequences of a 2-h nocturnal interruption of continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII), seven insulin-dependent diabetic patients without residual insulin secretion were investigated. The changes in blood glucose, plasma free insulin, glucagon, free fatty acids, and 3-hydroxybutyrate (3 OH-B) concentrations have been compared during two randomized tests carried out either during the normal functioning of a Mill-Hill pump from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. (1.00 +/- 0.06 U insulin/h, keeping adequate metabolic control) or during the same conditions but with a deliberate arrest of the pump between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. Considering the value recorded at 11 p.m. as reference, interruption of the insulin infusion resulted in: (1) a rapid (already significant after 1 h) and sustained (maximal fall: --12.5 +/- 2.5 mU/L at 3 a.m.) decrease in plasma free insulin; (2) a delayed (significant after 4 h) and linear rise in blood glucose (maximal increase: + 4.0 +/- 1.3 mmol/L at 5 a.m.); (3) an early (significant at midnight) and prolonged rise in plasma free fatty acids (+ 387 +/- 148 mumol/L at 3 a.m.); (4) a delayed (significant after 3 h) and sustained increase in plasma 3 OH-B (+ 347 +/- 88 mumol/L at 3 a.m.); and (5) no significant changes in plasma glucagon. Thus, a 2-h interruption of CSII in resting nocturnal conditions is sufficient to induce significant, delayed, and sustained metabolic alterations in C-peptide-negative patients despite good baseline blood glucose control. Resetting the pump at its basal rate is insufficient to quickly restore adequate circulating insulin levels and effectively counteract the metabolic disturbances. The efficacy of a bolus insulin injection in these conditions should be evaluated. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 7 (0 ULg)

Interruption of a continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion, most often due to technical problems occurring during the night, is a not uncommon event whose metabolic consequences have received relatively little attention until now. We have therefore investigated the changes in blood glucose, plasma non-esterified fatty acids, 3-hydroxybutyrate, glucagon and free insulin in eight C-peptide negative Type 1 diabetic patients whose pumps were deliberately stopped between 23.00 h and 05.00 h. A control test with the pump functioning normally was carried out in each patient and the studies were randomized. Considering the values at 23.00 h as reference, interruption of the insulin infusion resulted in (1) a rapid decrease in plasma free insulin significant after 1 h and reaching a nadir of 6 +/- 2 mU/l after 6 h; (2) a rise in blood glucose which was significant at hour 3 and reached 17.4 +/- 1.9 mmol/l at hour 6; (3) a moderate increase in plasma nonesterified fatty acids which remained in the range of 700-800 mumol/l; (4) an early and linear rise in plasma 3-hydroxybutyrate, significant after 1 h and averaging 1290 +/- 140 mumol/l after 6 h; (5) a late increase (hour 5) in plasma glucagon. The second aim of our study was to provide for the patient a precise scheme of insulin supplements administered via the pump and based on blood glucose monitoring (Dextrostix - Glucometer) and semi-quantitative evaluation of ketonuria (Acetest). Resetting the pump at its basal rate at 05.00 h and giving insulin supplements (2-8 U) at 06.45 h (with the usual breakfast dose) and again at 10.00 h have proved efficacious in restoring satisfactory metabolic control by noon the day after starting the experiment. These results form practical recommendations to patients undergoing this type of accident. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 26 (0 ULg)
