          The metabolism of U-<sup>14</sup>C-glucose was studied in vitro using diaphragm and adipose tissue from fasted hypophysectomized maintained on cortisone and thyroxine replacement. Treatment with growth hormone did not affect basal glucose metabolism in either tissue and only minimally altered insulin responsiveness of the tissues. The failure of growth hormone to increase insulin resistance suggests that other factors such as diet or hormonal status may be more important in these animals.
