To evaluate the effect of a glucose load on some biochemical parameters 5 each of pregnant (with single or twin foetus) and nonpregnant clinically healthy and well-fed Sardinian ewes were used. The concentration of glucose, total protein, total cholesterol, triglycerides and urea was assessed 15 min before and 5, 10, 15, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120, 240 min after glucose infusion. There was significant effect of time after glucose infusion on glucose and triglycerides and a significant effect of pregnancy after glucose infusion on all parameters studied. In conclusion, these results showed glucose as an important direct controller of metabolic interactions in normal subjects and of metabolic responses in pregnant ewes.

Abstract

To evaluate the effect of a glucose load on some biochemical parameters 5 each of pregnant (with single or twin foetus) and nonpregnant clinically healthy and well-fed Sardinian ewes were used. The concentration of glucose, total protein, total cholesterol, triglycerides and urea was assessed 15 min before and 5, 10, 15, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120, 240 min after glucose infusion. There was significant effect of time after glucose infusion on glucose and triglycerides and a significant effect of pregnancy after glucose infusion on all parameters studied. In conclusion, these results showed glucose as an important direct controller of metabolic interactions in normal subjects and of metabolic responses in pregnant ewes.
