Islet-cell dysfunction induced by glucocorticoid treatment: potential role for altered sympathovagal balance?

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Glucocorticoids impair glucose tolerance by inducing insulin resistance. We investigated the dose-dependent effects of glucocorticoid treatment on islet-cell function in healthy males and studied the role of the autonomic nervous system.
