The 24-h integrated plasma concentration of glucose (IC-glucose), norepinephrine (IC-NE), epinephrine (IC-E), cortisol (IC-F), growth hormone (IC-GH), aldosterone (IC-ALDO), and plasma renin activity (IC-PRA) were measured in 11 nonobese juvenile-onset nonketotic diabetic patients exhibiting hyperglycemia and glucosuria and 34 matched control subjects using a portable pump, drawing blood at a constant rate through a nonthrombogenic i.v. catheter. The diabetic patients had a noticeable rise of their IC-NE, IC-E, IC-GH, and IC-ALDO. There was no significant difference between the IC-F and IC-PRA of the patients and the control subjects.
