Interaction Information:

Comment Carbenoxolone did not affect the rate of glucose disposal or the suppression of free fatty acids during hyperinsulinemia. However, carbenoxolone reduced the glucose production rate during hyperglucagonemia in diabetic patients. This was attributable to reduced glycogenolysis rather than altered gluconeogenesis.
