- Normal blood [glucose] regulation is critical to support metabolism, particularly in contexts of metabolic stressors (e.g., exercise, high altitude hypoxia). Data regarding blood [glucose] regulation in hypoxia are inconclusive. We aimed to characterize blood [glucose] over 80 min following glucose ingestion during both normoxia and acute normobaric hypoxia. In a randomized cross-over design, on two separate days, 28 healthy participants (16 females; 21.8 ± 1.6 years; BMI 22.8 ± 2.5 kg/m2) were randomly exposed to either NX (room air; fraction of inspired [FI]O2 ~0.21) or HX (FIO2 ~0.148) in a normobaric hypoxia chamber. Measured FIO2 and peripheral oxygen saturation were both lower at...
