Hyperglycemia, Insulin, and Insulin Resistance in Sepsis, The American journal of the medical sciences
Critically ill patients frequently have hyperglycemia. This event may reflect severe stress with an imbalance between anabolic hormones and catabolic hormones. Alternatively, it may reflect alterations in either insulin levels or insulin function. Insulin is a pleiotropic hormone with multiple important metabolic effects. In patients with sepsis, insulin levels are increased but insulin sensitivity is decreased. However, there is variability in insulin sensitivity, and this creates variability in glucose levels and insulin requirements and increases the frequency of hypo- and hyperglycemia. The factors that influence insul...

The liver is organized into zones in which hepatocytes express different metabolic enzymes. The cells most responsible for liver repopulation and regeneration remain undefined, because fate mapping has only been performed on a few hepatocyte subsets.

During homeostasis, cells from both periportal zone 1 and pericentral zone 3 contracted in number, whereas cells from midlobular zone 2 expanded in number. Cells within zone 2, which are sheltered from common injuries, also contributed to regeneration after pericentral and...
