(CM-06) In recent years, Oral Glucose Tolerance Tests have lost support as a diagnostic tool for Diabetes Mellitus. It overdiagnoses diabetes, because a variety of stresses can produce an abnormal response as a consequence of an epinephrine discharge. Even anxiety over venipunctures may generate sufficient epinephrine to produce an abnormal test. Epinephrine induce an elevation in glycemia because this hormone:
a) inhibits gluconeogenesis and glycogenesis
b) inhibits gluconeogenesis and glycogenolysis
c) inhibits glycogenolysis and glycolysis.
d) stimulates glycogenolysis and inhibits glycogenesis
e) stimulates glycogenesis and gluconeogenesis
