FEBRUARY 16, 2011 [Glucagon, Homeostasis] Mouse Study Eliminates Need for Insulin by Eliminating Glucagon
As Dr. Unger stated in a press release, his findings "suggest that if there is no glucagon, it doesn't matter if you don't have insulin.In adulthood, at least with respect to glucose metabolism, the role of insulin is to control glucagon. And if you don't have glucagon, then you don't need insulin.If diabetes is defined as restoration of glucose homeostasis to normal, then this treatment can perhaps be considered very close to a ‘cure.' Can't make insulin?

INSULIN NATION [Glucagon, Homeostasis] Poniendo fin al juego de la culpa de A1C
| THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 2014
Ahora estamos sólo empezando a comprender que hay 4 tipos diferentes de células en el islote que hace 5 hormonas diferentes, todas las cuales impactan el control de la glucosa (insulina, amilina, glucagon
, somatostatina, polipéptido pancreático y islote ghrelin). Este artículo fue traducido en español por Mila Ferrer. MORE >>

| THURSDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2010
Cortisol is the main mediator of stress response, but other stress hormones such as catecholamines, glucagon
and growth hormone also have hyperglycemic effects. Medical interventions, such as enteral and parenteral nutrition, administration of vasopressors and glucocorticoids, add even further to disturbed glucose homeostasis

DIABETES IN CONTROL [Glucagon, Homeostasis] INGAP (Exsulin™) Study to Regenerate Beta Cells Begins
| TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2010
Although at this stage of development it may not completely control the amount of circulating glucose, Exsulin does improve glucose homeostasis
, which prevents the dramatic fluctuations that can lead to the main complications of diabetes: neuropathy, renal failure, blindness and heart disease. In a healthy pancreas, these "islets," or small groups of cells, house all cells that produce glucagon
, somatostatin, pancreatic polypeptide, as well as those that produce insulin. MORE >>

| TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2009
Studies investigating glucagon
-like peptide (GLP)-1-based therapies dominated the meeting, much as data on the same subject dominated the American Diabetes Association (ADA) 68th Scientific Sessions in June 2008. Indirect assessments with the Homeostasis
Model Assessment (HOMA) equations showed a clear 28% to 34% improvement over baseline for liraglutide, regardless of concomitant antidiabetes therapies. MORE >>
