abstract = "Context: Ghrelin is a gut-derived peptide and an endogenous ligand for the ghrelin receptor. Intravenous infusion of ghrelin induces insulin resistance, hyperglycemia, and increases circulating levels of nonesterified free fatty acids. Objective: To investigate whether the metabolic effects are mediated directly by ghrelin in skeletal muscle and adipose (peripheral and central) tissues. Design, Participants, and Interventions: Ten healthy men (24.9±1.3 years) received 300 min of supraphysiologic ghrelin administration by microdialysis catheters in skeletal muscle and adipose tissues in a randomized, single-blind, and placebo controlled study. Microdialysis perfusates were analyzed every 30 minutes for glucose, glycerol, and lactate during both a basal period and a hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamp. Setting: The study was conducted at a university hospital research unit. Main Outcome Measures: The primary outcome measures were interstitial concentrations of glucose, glycerol, and lactate in skeletal muscle and adipose tissues. Results: Interstitial concentrations of glucose were similar in skeletal muscle, peripheral, and central adipose tissue in the basal period. During hyperinsulinemia interstitial concentrations of glucose in skeletal muscle decreased in response to ghrelin exposure (mmolxL-1): 2.84±0.25 (ghrelin) vs. 3.06±0.26 (placebo), P=0.04. Ghrelin exposure did not impact on interstitial concentrations of glycerol and lactate. Conclusions: Ghrelin administration into skeletal muscle decreases interstitial concentrations of glucose during euglycemic hyperinsulinemia indicative of increased insulin sensitivity without any effects on interstitial glycerol levels in either muscle or adipose tissue. These data contrast with the metabolic effects of ghrelin observed after systemic exposure and suggest the existence of a second messenger that remains to be identified.",
