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?

JOSLIN DIABETES CENTER [Glucagon, Homeostasis] Artificial Sweeteners: To Use or Not To Use?
| MONDAY, AUGUST 19, 2013
The researchers measured glucose, insulin, c-peptide, glucagon
and a variety of incretin-based hormones. Scientists have postulated a number of possibilities to explain this possible incongruity including a change in hormonal homeostasis
as demonstrated by the study above. What's the deal with artificial sweeteners? There has been a lot of negative publicity going around about diet sodas and artificial sweeteners recently. MORE >>
JOSLIN DIABETES CENTER [Glucagon, Homeostasis] Type 2 Treatment from the Alpha Cell?
| FRIDAY, JUNE 15, 2012
Just as the beta cells secrete insulin, the alpha cells secrete another hormone called glucagon
. In 2009 researchers at the Joslin Diabetes Center showed that insulin itself affects the secretion of glucagon
and opened the door to research on ways to target glucagon
plays an essential role in energy metabolism. Glucagon
is the reason people without diabetes can fast all day and still have the energy to carry on all their normal activities. MORE >>

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

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
