In the postabsorptive state (10-12 hour overnight fast), the majority of total body glucose disposal takes place in insulin independent tissues (1). Under basal conditions approximately 50% of all glucose utilization occurs in the brain, which is insulin independent and becomes saturated at a plasma glucose concentration of about 40 mg/dl (2). Another 25% of glucose uptake occurs in the splanchnic area (liver plus gastrointestinal tissues) and also is insulin independent (3). The remaining 25% of glucose metabolism in the postabsorptive state takes place in insulin-dependent tissues, primarily muscle (4,5). Basal glucose utilization averages ~2.0 mg/kg.min and is precisely matched by the rate of endogenous glucose production (1,3-7). Approximately 85% of endogenous glucose production is derived from the liver, and the remaining amount is produced by the kidney (1,8,9). Approximately half of basal hepatic glucose production is derived from glycogenolysis and half from gluconeogenesis (9,10). Following glucose ingestion, the balance between endogenous glucose production and tissue glucose uptake is disrupted. The increase in plasma glucose concentration stimulates insulin release
