Gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP) is produced within endocrine cells of the small intestine and released into the circulation upon nutrient ingestion. This study has quantified the levels of this insulinotropic peptide in the intestines of lean and diabetic obese ob/ob mice and estimated the proportion that is glycated. The total intestinal GIP concentration and content of the diabetic mice were significantly greater (p
