Abstract: Impairments in pancreas incretory functions were detected in patients with chronic liver diseases of alcohol etiology (lipid dystrophy, cirrhosis) after radioimmunologic examination of immunoreactive insulin, C-peptide and glucagon in blood under these conditions and during glucose-tolerance test. Mechanisms of resistance to insulin and to hyperinsulinemia under conditions of these pathological states are considered.
