These findings clearly indicate that chronic alcohol exposure induces a [beta]-cell dysfunction and not an enteroinsular incretin dysfunction, because the decrease in insulin response compared with the control group also was observed when glucose was administered intravenously.

This is probably due to yet to be understood role of enteroinsular axis leading to enhanced beta-cell sensitivity and reducing the peripheral insulin resistance.
26-29] The precise mechanisms by which TCF7L2 variants increase risk are not well understood, although various lines of evidence suggest that they involve the enteroinsular axis, impaired insulin secretion and possibly reduced P cell proliferation.
Pontikis (10) demostro un aumento de la actividad del eje enteroinsular (regulador del intestino sobre la secrecion postprandial de insulina mediante la secrecion de incretinas) en la obesidad y un mayor efecto insulinotropico junto con una mala respuesta de GIP a la prueba de tolerancia oral de glucosa, en mujeres con sobrepeso y obesas con SOP; esto puede explicarse por un aumento compensatorio de la secrecion de insulina en las celulas beta pancreaticas y como respuesta a la estimulacion de las incretinas asociados a la obesidad y el SOP.
