Abstract

IT is well known that glycogen is utilized during muscular work, but there is very little information available about the resynthesis of glycogen after exhaustive exercise. Goldstein1 has shown that a humoral factor, which decreases the blood glucose concentration, is released during exercise. Furthermore, it is known that the insulin requirement decreases in diabetic subjects during exercise.
