Growth hormone directly favors hepatic ketogenesis in persons with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes mellitus treated with empagliflozin.

Endocrine 2021 Apr 19. Epub 2021 Apr 19.

Post-graduation Program of Health Sciences, Londrina State University, Londrina, Brazil.

Purpose: Sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors increase glucagon secretion by pancreatic alpha cells and the susceptibility to ketoacidosis. On the other hand, growth hormone (GH) stimulates peripheral lipolysis and provides free fatty acids (FFA) for ketogenesis; however, it remains unresolved whether GH directly impacts hepatic ketogenesis. We aimed to investigate the role of physiologic GH levels in promoting ketogenesis in prediabetic or type 2 diabetic patients under empagliflozin treatment. Read More

Physiological responses to carbohydrate overfeeding.

Curr Opin Clin Nutr Metab Care 2021 Apr 16. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Centre for Nutrition, Exercise & Metabolism, Department for Health, University of Bath, Bath, UK.

Purpose Of Review: To consider emerging research into the physiological effects of excessive dietary carbohydrate intake, with a particular focus on interactions with physical activity.

Recent Findings: A single episode of massive carbohydrate overload initiates physiological responses to stimulate additional peptide hormone secretion by the gut and the conversion of carbohydrate into lipid by the intestine, liver and adipose tissue. These acute responses maintain glycaemic control both via increased oxidation of carbohydrate (rather than lipid) and via nonoxidative disposal of surplus carbohydrate into endogenous glycogen and lipid storage depots.

Increased postprandial nonesterified fatty acid efflux from adipose tissue in prediabetes is offset by enhanced dietary fatty acid adipose trapping.

Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab 2021 Apr 19. Epub 2021 Apr 19.

Medicine, Endocrinology department, Medicine Division,CHUS Research Center, Sherbrooke University, 3001 12th Avenue North, Sherbrooke, QC, J1H 5N4, Canada.

The mechanism of increased postprandial nonesterified fatty acid (NEFA) appearance in the circulation in impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) is due to increased adipose tissue lipolysis but could also be contributed to by reduced adipose tissue (AT) dietary fatty acid (DFA) trapping and increased 'spillover' into the circulation. Thirty-one subjects with IGT (14 women, 17 men) and 29 with normal glucose tolerance (NGT, 15 women, 14 men) underwent a meal test with oral and intravenous palmitate tracers and the oral [F]-fluoro-thia-heptadecanoic acid positron emission tomography method. Postprandial palmitate appearance (Ra) was higher in IGT vs. Read More

Unique adaptations in neonatal hepatic transcriptome, nutrient signaling, and one-carbon metabolism in response to feeding ethyl cellulose rumen-protected methionine during late-gestation in Holstein cows.

BMC Genomics 2021 Apr 17;22(1):280. Epub 2021 Apr 17.

Department of Animal Sciences and Division of Nutritional Sciences, University of Illinois, Urbana, IL, 61801, USA.

Background: Methionine (Met) supply during late-pregnancy enhances fetal development in utero and leads to greater rates of growth during the neonatal period. Due to its central role in coordinating nutrient and one-carbon metabolism along with immune responses of the newborn, the liver could be a key target of the programming effects induced by dietary methyl donors such as Met. To address this hypothesis, liver biopsies from 4-day old calves (n = 6/group) born to Holstein cows fed a control or the control plus ethyl-cellulose rumen-protected Met for the last 28 days prepartum were used for DNA methylation, transcriptome, metabolome, proteome, and one-carbon metabolism enzyme activities.
