Abstract

Results obtained in an investigation of two groups of obese and grossly obese subjects are presented. Poorer carbohydrate tolerance was noted in the latter. Blood insulin patterns after oral glucose loading, however, were less easy to interpret. Overall, the values were much the same in the two groups. Nevertheless, analysis of the curves showed that the grossly obese displayed a later peak.
