A doubly labelled tracer molecule of glucose, [6,6-2HJglucose, has been used to measure the rate of glucose appearance in blood due to endogenous glucose production (by the liver and kidneysj.l,2 Considered 'non-recirculating', this tracer generally provides a realistic estimate of glucose kinetics.2,3 Used as a dual tracer in conjunction with [l-13C]glucose, the extent of glucose recycling can be quantitated.2-4 but the extent of possible recirculation of a single deuterium atom on newly formed glucose must then be considered.
