OBJECTIVE: To determine the relative effects of growth hormone and insulin on ketogenesis during puberty. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: We studied overnight changes in plasma ketones--3-hydroxybutyrate and acetoacetate--in 35 normal and 26 IDDM adolescents at different stages of puberty. The diabetic adolescents either were on their normal insulin regimen or were studied during an overnight euglycemic clamp with or without suppression of endogenous growth hormone release. RESULTS: Total ketone...Expand abstract
