Effect of insulin hypoglycaemia on adrenocortical function and blood plasma vitamin E and cholesterol levels in suckling and weaned piglets



Effect of insulin hypoglycaemia on adrenocortical function and blood plasma vitamin E and cholesterol levels in suckling and weaned piglets



Physiologia Bohemoslovaca 25(1): 7-11



Sucking piglets aged 28 to 31 days and weaned piglets aged 46 to 60 days were given insulin 1.0 unit/kg bodyweight to induce hypoglycaemia. Samples of blood were taken before and at 45 and 90 min after the insulin injection, and plasma glucose, vitamin E and free 17-hydroxycorticosteroids (17-OHCS) were estimated. Both groups demonstrated an adrenocortical response with no significant difference between them although the rise in 17-OHCS in the weaned piglets was slightly delayed.
