Abstract

The insulin response to a 100 g oral glucose load was studied in 20 non-obese, healthy Indian females and 20 matched Indian males. There were no differences between the mean glucose responses of the two groups. However, early-phase (0-60 minutes) insulin release was significantly greater in the females. While there were no significant differences between the two groups when the total areas under the insulin and glucose curves were computed, the female volunteers had a significantly higher mean insulinogenic index. It therefore appears that healthy Indian females have significantly greater early-phase insulin release than their matched male counterparts.
