Study hypothesis is to examine the relative contribution of macronutrients for gut hormone secretion after a mixed meal in healthy volunteers and in subjects with type 2 diabetes. Individual macronutrients or a mixed meal will therefore be served and gut hormones are measured during the following 300 min.

Experimental: Type 2 diabetes
Administration of macronutrients in type 2 diabetes
Other: Macronutrients
Glucose 330 kcal Protein 110 kcal Fat emulsion 110 kcal Mixed meal 550 kcal
Other Names:
  • Glucose
  • Protein mixture
  • Fat emulsion

Experimental: Healthy volunteers
Administration of macronutrients in healthy volunteers
Other: Macronutrients
Glucose 330 kcal Protein 110 kcal Fat emulsion 110 kcal Mixed meal 550 kcal
Other Names:
  • Glucose
  • Protein mixture
  • Fat emulsion
  • Mixed meal

Detailed Description:
In healthy volunteers and subjects with dietary regulated diabetes mellitus, glucose, protein mixture or fat emulsion will be served individually and on a separate occasions a mixed meal will be served. Samples will be taken during the following 300 min. Concentrations of the gut hormones glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide and glucagon-like peptide-1, insulin and glucagon will be determined.
