CONTEXT: The insulin-stimulating and glucagon-regulating effects of the two incretin hormones, glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP), contribute to maintain normal glucose homeostasis. Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) occurs with high prevalence among patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of the incretin hormones on endocrine pancreatic function in patients with ESRD.

DESIGN: and Setting: Twelve ESRD patients on chronic haemodialysis and 12 matched healthy controls, all with normal oral glucose tolerance test, were included. On three separate days, a 2 h euglycaemic clamp followed by a 2 h hyperglycaemic clamp (3 mM above fasting level) was performed with concomitant infusion of GLP-1 (1 pmol/kg/min), GIP (2 pmol/kg/min) or saline administered in a randomised, double-blinded fashion. A 30% lower infusion rate was used in the ESRD group to obtain comparable incretin hormone plasma levels.

RESULTS: During clamps, comparable plasma glucose and intact incretin hormone concentrations were achieved. The effect of GLP-1 to increase insulin concentrations relative to placebo levels tended to be lower during euglycaemia in ESRD and was significantly reduced during hyperglycaemia (50 [8-72]%, P=0.03). Similarly, the effect of GIP relative to placebo levels tended to be lower during euglycaemia in ESRD and was significantly reduced during hyperglycaemia (34 [13-50]%, P=0.005). Glucagon was suppressed in both groups with controls reaching lower concentrations than ESRD patients.

CONCLUSIONS: The effect of incretin hormones to increase insulin release is reduced in ESRD which together with elevated glucagon levels could contribute to the high prevalence of IGT among ESRD patients.
