Such an effect may be accounted by a decrease in the rate of intestinal glucose absorption, achieved by an extra pancreatic action including the stimulation of peripheral glucose utilization or enhancing glycolytic and glycogenic process with concomitant decrease in glycogenolysis and glyconeogenesis (Luzi and Pozza 1997).
28] Increased cortisol levels stimulate gluconeogenesis and glyconeogenesis in the liver, with triglyercides being converted to glycerol and fatty acids providing the substrates for gluconeogensis.
The keto acid so formed in this reaction may be channeled into Kreb's cycle for the liberation of energy or may enroute into glyconeogenesis or lipogenesis.
They include muscle fiber utilization, the glycolytic intermediates, the use of lactate in glyconeogenesis, and the affects of blood glucose and insulin.
The constant content of glycogen indicated either that glycogen was not in great demand or that it was resynthesized from other constituents by glyconeogenesis.
