Acute effect of ethanol on insulin sensitivity in dogs
SN Das, AC Saha, A Chakrabarti, MD Ali
Administration of ethanol 2 ml/kg by i.v. drip in normal dogs caused insulin resistance. Studies of plasma inorganic phosphate level proved that there was no defect in phosphate uptake at cellular level. This suggests that anti-insulin effect of ethanol is not mediated through the defective phosphorylation.
