Abstract
The study used two variations of a glucose tolerance test (GTT) to investigate changes in carbohydrate metabolism in healthy males during nude exposure to cold. In experiment 1, an oral GTT was performed in the cold and in the warm (3h at 10 or 29C). To bypass the gastrointestinal tract, and to suppress hepatic glucose output, a second experiment was carried out as described above, using an intravenous GTT.
