The metabolism of circulating disaccharides was studied in adult humans and rats. After iv infusions of 10 g of either lactose, sucrose, or maltose in four adults, no rise in blood glucose was noted. A mean of 8.7±1.89 g of the lactose and 6.3±1.39 g of the sucrose was excreted in the 24-hour urine sample. Only 0.11±0.03 g of the infused maltose was recovered in the urine, suggesting that the maltose was metabolized.

Usage data is cumulative from August 2021 through August 2022.
Usage information is collected from two different sources: this site (JCI) and Pubmed Central (PMC). JCI information (compiled daily) shows human readership based on methods we employ to screen out robotic usage. PMC information (aggregated monthly) is also similarly screened of robotic usage.
Various methods are used to distinguish robotic usage. For example, Google automatically scans articles to add to its search index and identifies itself as robotic; other services might not clearly identify themselves as robotic, or they are new or unknown as robotic. Because this activity can be misinterpreted as human readership, data may be re-processed periodically to reflect an improved understanding of robotic activity. Because of these factors, readers should consider usage information illustrative but subject to change.
