Patients who had undergone gastric resection were studied with blood glucose and serum insulin levels during oral glucose tolerance testing. The symptoms which appear two to three hours after a glucose load follow a marked rise in serum insulin and are accompanied by hypoglycemia. By appropriate elevation of the blood glucose, high seruminsulin levels and a similar secondary hypoglycemic syndrome can be produced in normal individuals.
