Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Study the effect of anticholinergic drugs on insulin sensitivity by assessment of glucose infusion rate during hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamp. [ Time Frame: After Insulin bolus, following will be measured; p-glucose (every 5 minutes), blood samples (every 30 minutes), pulse (every 5 minutes the first hour then every 10 minutes), blood pressure will be measured (the same as pulse). ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Study the effect of cholinergic stimulation on insulin sensitivity by assessment ofglucose infusion rate during hyperinsulinemic euglycemic clamp. [ Time Frame: measured; p-glucose (every 5 minutes), blood samples (every 30 minutes), pulse (every 5 minutes the first hour then every 10 minutes), blood pressure will be measured (the same as pulse). ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Study the possible difference in effect of cholinergic (physostigmine) andanticholinergic (atropine) drugs on insulin sensitivity in a lean and abdominal obese subgroup of subjects. [ Time Frame: measured; p-glucose (every 5 minutes), blood samples (every 30 minutes), pulse (every 5 minutes the first hour then every 10 minutes), blood pressure will be measured (the same as pulse). ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
