- ‘Beta cells may secrete high levels of insulin to normalize blood glucose levels and successfully maintain normoglycemia for many years.’
- ‘Under these conditions the liver stops consuming glucose and becomes metabolically gluconeogenic, producing glucose to re-establish normoglycemia.’

- ‘Treatment includes strict plasma glucose control to achieve and maintain normoglycemia and administration of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors to decrease the progress of diabetic nephropathy.’
