Glucagon has been shown to decrease absorption of salt and water from chronic canine intestinal loops, but to increase absorption from rat small intestine in acute experiments. The purpose of this investigation was to determine if glucagon could acutely alter ileal salt and/or water absorption by the canine ileum, and, if so, to determine if the mechanism of action was through cardiovascular changes, or through peripheral glucose or insulin release.
