Insulin dosage and glucose-6-phosphatase activity

Insulin
(units/kg/h postnatal life × 103)
Vmax(nmol/min/mg) p Value
0 (n=22)76 (12)
<10 (n=6)134 (38)0.06
10–15 (n=4)145 (25)0.03
15+ (n=4)222 (46)0.0002
  • Results are mean (SE).

  • p Values, for comparison of result with that for infants receiving no insulin treatment, were calculated with Student'st test using the Instat program for Macintosh computers.
