The elimination of 1,5-anhydroglucitol administered to rats
- 31 Downloads
Rat serum contains natural 1,5-anhydroglucitol. Injected or orally administered 1,5-anhydroglucitol was efficiently reabsorbed by the renal tubuli via a mechanism which had a saturation point at high serum 1,5-anhydroglucitol levels. The compound had a slow turnover rate in the body; its half-life is approximately 3 days. The compound was readily absorbed in the gut when administered orally.
