Abstract

Hyperglycemia has been noted in man and animal during hemorrhagic shock. Studies in the dog demonstrated that this hyperglycemia is accompanied by elevated levels of serum immunoreactive insulin, suggesting increased insulin resistance (2). However, recent shock studies by Carey (3) in man, and from our laboratory in the baboon (6) have shown a different pattern. Insulin levels have been depressed despite hyperglycemia, suggesting suppression of insulin release rather than increased insulin resistance.
