Synopsis: 
Insulin increased the expression of GLUT4 mRNA and GLUT4 in the skeletal muscle of septic rats. Blood glucose concentration of 8–10 mmol/L results in more glucose utilization than 6–8 mmol/L in the skeletal muscle of septic rats during insulin therapy.

ABSTRACT

Background: Insulin resistance is common in septic patients. The level at which the serum glucose should be maintained using insulin infusions for optimal utilization by skeletal muscles is not yet established.
