    Aims/hypothesis. The enteric incretin hormone, glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), is a potent insulin secretagogue in healthy humans and patients with Type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus. In this study we assessed the impact of short-term GLP-1 infusion on pulsatile insulin secretion...

    The American Diabetes Association currently recommends an A1C goal of less than 7 percent. However, many patients are unable to achieve this goal by using oral drug combinations or diet and exercise, leaving insulin as the only treatment option. In most cases, insulin is initiated later in...

    The gastrointestinal tract has a crucial role in the control of energy homeostasis through the action of multiple peptides known as incretins that act on distant target sites to promote the efficient uptake and storage of energy. In particular, GLP-1, an incretin hormone secreted from the...

    Background: There have been enumerable studies on the effects of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) on satiety and pancreatic islet function, stimulating the advocacy of surgical transposition of the ileum (rich in GLP-1-generating L-cells) higher in the gastrointestinal tract for earlier...

    Both basal and postprandial elevations contribute to the hyperglycemic exposure of diabetes, but current therapies are mainly effective in controlling the basal component. Inability to control postprandial hyperglycemia limits success in maintaining overall glycemic control beyond the first 5 to...

    Gut-derived peptides like ghrelin and glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) affect glucose metabolism in many ways, e.g. by altering insulin sensitivity or secretion. The proglucagon-derived peptide oxyntomodulin (OXM) is cosecreted with GLP-1 and inhibits feeding in rodents and man. We evaluated the...

    OBJECTIVE--Recent progress suggests that exenatide, a mimetic of glucagon-likepeptide-1 (GLP-1), might lower glycemia independent of increased β-cell response or reduced gastrointestinal motility. We aimed to investigate whether exenatide stimulates glucose turnover directly in...

    The hypothesis that glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is an important mediator of postprandial insulin secretion and glucose tolerance has been largely based on studies using oral glucose administration. Whether GLP-1 is also important after ingestion of other macronutrients has been little...
