  • ISSN : 0302-7104



Blood glucose concentration was determined in 20 pregnant does receiving a high and low plane of nutrition during the fourth month of gestation. In the control group which was kept on a high plane of nutrition blood glucose concentration varied round a mean of 44,3 mg%. In experimental animals which received a low plane of nutrition for a period of three weeks the blood glucose level dropped by approximately 28% and was maintained at a relatively low level of about 33 mg% throughout the period of subnutrition.
