Glucose disposal: In the basal state, steady/near steady-state conditions prevail and whole-body glucose disposal equals endogenous (hepatic) plus renal glucose production. Data on the individual contribution of organs and tissues to total glucose uptake have been obtained in regional catheterization studies. In the case of the splanchnic area, in which glucose uptake and production both occur simultaneously, such data have been derived from the combined use of glucose tracers and indwelling catheters.

By convention, the basal state is the metabolic condition prevailing in the morning after an overnight (10–14h) fast. This time marks the end of the longest period of fasting in ordinary life and also is the most common point of clinical observation and physiologic measurements. The true value of basal endogenous (liver plus kidney) glucose production is the one that would be reproducibly measured with the use of an irreversible glucose tracer, which loses its label at the earliest possible intracellular step without ever getting it reincorporated into a circulating tracer molecule.
