Las hormonas contrarreguladoras tienen el efecto contrario, que incluye el aumento de los niveles de glicemia sanguinea por estimulo de la glucogenolisis y glucogenesis, aumentando la lipolisis y la cetogenesis.
Los efectos principales de esta hormona son: el incremento de la acumulacion de proteinas (mayor retencion de nitrogeno, el cual es un factor indispensable en la sintesis de proteinas), la disminucion de la capa lipidica (la somatotrofina tiene varios efectos sobre las grasas), disminucion de la glucogenesis, un aumento en la glucolisis y por ultimo el aumento en la produccion de leche (3).
Epinephrine increases glucogenesis and glycogen breakdown in the liver, leading to hyperglycemia.
Agent Comment Metformin Increased insulin sensitivity, reduction of glucogenesis, inhibition of excessive glucose absorption, enhanced glycolysis by increasing gene expression that encodes for glucokinase and liver-specific pyruvate kinase.
It is indicated that pinealectomy causes a decrease in hepatic and muscular glucogenesis which provides an increase in the blood levels of glucose and a decrease in insulin, while it may be responsible for glucose intolerance and impaired insulin secretion as well.
Insulin mediates peripheral glucose disposal and suppresses glucogenesis in the liver.
In the absence of insulin, the body cannot use the glucose available, hormones are activated to increase glucose levels, and the liver activates glucogenesis.
