for premature mortality ( 4 ). Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is a peptide hormone secreted from intestinal L-cells upon meal intake ( 5 ). GLP-1 stimulates insulin secretion in a glucose-dependent manner – as part of ‘the incretin effect’ – being

Introduction Glucagon and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) are processed from the same precursor, proglucagon ( Fig. 1 ), and have opposite effects on glucose homeostasis ( 1 , 2 , 3 ). In the intestine, proglucagon is cleaved by prohormone

Introduction Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP1) is a gut-derived incretin hormone with multiple actions in addition to control of glucose homeostasis (1) . Synthetic GLP1 receptor (GLP1R) agonists lower blood pressure in patients with type 2 diabetes

incretin hormones glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) account for the gut-derived amplification of insulin secretion ( 4 ). In addition to the effect on pancreatic islets, we ( 5 ) and others ( 6 ) have

). Additionally, the time of the day of an OGTT seems to influence the glucose response with higher post-load blood glucose levels in the afternoon and evening compared to the morning ( 1 , 3 ). The incretin hormones glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) and glucose

Introduction Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) and glucagon arise from differential processing of the glucagon precursor, proglucagon (PG) (1) . Both peptides are important for normal glucose homeostasis, which focused interest on their potential

). Likewise, the effect of alcohol on the secretion of the gut-derived insulinotropic incretin hormones, glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) remains unclear ( 6 , 11 , 12 ). Recently, alcohol was shown to

). Incretin hormones are released after meal ingestion and account for up to 70% of postprandial insulin secretion ( 3 ). Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and gastric inhibitory polypeptide are the most important incretin hormones. GLP-1 secretion is impaired
