Serum C-peptide in renal failure patients following stimulation of pancreatic secretion

, : Serum C-peptide in renal failure patients following stimulation of pancreatic secretion. Clinical Nephrology 11(6): 297-301

We have demonstrated persistently elevated serum C-peptide concentrations in patients with chronic renal failure on chronic hemodialysis. A blunted serum C-peptide response to intravenous glucose, glucagon and tolbutamide was also found. However, the response to oral glucose stimulation was greater and more prolonged than in control subjects, probably related to the magnitude of hyperglycemia found in patients with chronic renal failure. These observations suggest the existence of a defect in the renal clearance of C-peptide although an abnormality in C-peptide secretion cannot be excluded.

The malignant potential among endocrine pancreatic tumors (EPTs) varies greatly and can frequently not be predicted using histopathological parameters. Thus, molecular markers that can predict the biological behavior of EPTs are required. In a pre...
