Test hypothesis that milk can raise blood sugars as well as orange juice or glucose tablets
without raising blood sugars too much the way that orange juice or glucose tablets sometimes
Subjects will wear a continuous glucose monitor prior to test to determine normal glucose
levels. The morning of the test an IV will be inserted into the subject and insulin and
saline drips will be started. Blood glucose levels will be checked every 10 minutes until
the subject becomes hypoglycemic. IVs will be stopped at that time and subject will be
given skim milk, orange juice or glucose tablets at that time. Blood will be drawn every 15
minutes until blood sugars stabilize. Blood draws will be analyzed to determine glucose,
insulin, epinephrine, norepinephrine, glucagon, cortisol, growth hormone and GLP-1 levels.
Procedure will be repeated two more times using other glucose methods (skim milk, orange
juice or glucose tablets).
