Glucagon

I’ve been reading with rabid interest some of the writing by Dr. Roger Unger on glucagon’s role in diabetes. Here’s a link I saw recently. It’s a bit dense technically, but I was able to get through most of it.

Glucagon’s role in diabetes seems to be much more important than we thought. Dr. Unger’s research lays out sound logic as to why normalizing blood glucose (70-100 mg/dL) with insulin alone is not possible.

I’d love to hear your feedback on this. Can suppression of glucagon really normalize blood glucose levels?
