||Dietary intake and urine output were monitored continuously for four crewmembers of a Space Shuttle mission from 11 days before launch to 7 days after landing (total 27 days). The urinary C-peptide excretion rate was used as a marker for insulin secretion. Mean inflight C-peptide excretion rates were significantly lower than either the pre- or postflight rates. The progressively increasing C-peptide excretion during 9 days of spaceflight is indicative of the development of insulin resistance in astronauts.
