Mechanismus und pharmakologische Beeinflussung der endokrinen Lipolyse

  • E. Westermann
Part of the Symposion der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Endokrinologie book series (ENDOKRINOLOGIE, volume 12)


Die Vorstellung, daß die energetischen. Bedürfnisse des Organismus ganz überwiegend durch die Mobilisation und Verbrennung von Kohlenhydraten gedeckt werden (Gemmill, 1942), läßt sich heute nicht mehr aufrecht erhalten. Abgesehen davon, daß die Glykogenvorräte gar nicht ausreichen würden, um bei längerem Nahrungsentzug die calorische Homöostase des Organismus aufrecht zu erhalten, sprechen auch Messungen des respiratorischen Quotienten im Hungerzustand oder bei Muskelarbeit gegen eine bevorzugte Utilisation von Kohlenhydraten (Issekutz, 1964).
