Blood glucose at sixty, ninety, and one hundred twenty minutes after a standardized oral glucose load was compared in healthy middle-aged men and patients with intermittent claudication. No difference was found when the authors compared blood glucose at zero and sixty minutes. At both ninety and one hundred twenty minutes, however, they found a relative hypoglycemia in patients with peripheral arteriosclerotic disease in an early stage.
