To evaluate the hypothesis that smoking increases the dependence on blood glucose as a fuel, seven male smokers [28.7 +/- 1.7 (SE) yr. 77.7 +/- 4.3 kg] and seven nonsmokers (NS; 29.1 +/- 0.9 yr, 78.7 +/- 5.3 kg) were studied in the postabsorptive condition. NS received a primed continuous infusion of [6,6-2H]glucose and [1-13C]glucose during 90 min of rest and 60 min of exercise at 49.7 +/- 0.8% of peak O2 consumption on one occasion; chronic smokers continued their overnight abstinence from smoking (CS) for one trial but, on another occasion, acutely smoked (AS) two cigarettes immediately before resting measurements and another cigarette before exercise. Plasma glucose levels were similar among all groups at all times during the trials; however, the glucose rates of appearance (Ra) at rest in CS (1.96 +/- 0.14 x min-1) and AS (2.02 +/- 0.14) were higher than in NS (1.41 +/- 0.15, P < 0.05). With exercise, the glucose Ra values rose in all groups above resting values but were significantly greater in CS (4.76 +/- 0.50) and AS (4.71 +/- 0.53) than in NS (3.31 +/- 0.16). Glucose oxidation during exercise was elevated in smokers (2.31 +/- 0.37 x min-1 in CS and 2.18 +/- 0.34 in AS) compared with NS (1.09 +/- 0.18, P < 0.05). Nicotine levels correlated with the glucose Ra in AS (r = 0.93, P < 0.01). In conclusion, the results indicate that long-term smoking, independent of acute smoking, increases the dependence on blood glucose as a fuel during rest and sustained submaximal exercise.
