  • Perioperative infusion of glucagon-like peptide-1 prevents insulin resistance after surgical trauma in female pigs 

    Hagve, Martin Iversen; Gjessing, Petter Fosse; Hole, Mikal Jacob; Jansen, Kirsten M; Fuskevåg, Ole Martin; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Larsen, Terje S; Irtun, Øivind (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-10-07)
    Insulin resistance is an independent negative predictor of outcome after elective surgery and increases mortality among surgical patients in intensive care. The incretin hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) potentiates glucose-induced insulin release from the pancreas but may also increase insulin sensitivity in skeletal muscle and directly suppress hepatic glucose release. Here, we investigated ...
