The contribution of the sympathetic nervous system to the thermic effect of intravenously infused glucose and insulin was studied in 10 healthy young men before and after beta-adrenergic receptor blockade with propranolol during conditions of normoglycemia (90 mg/dl) at two levels of hyperinsulinemia (approximately 90 microU/ml and approximately 620 microU/ml). During steady state conditions of glucose uptake (0.515 +/- 0.046 and 0.754 +/- 0.056 g/min), significant increases were observed in energy expenditure (0.10 +/- 0.02 kcal/min, P less than 0.001, and 0.21 +/- 0.02 kcal/min, P less than 0.01, respectively). Similarly, glucose oxidation increased from 0.100...
