Hypoglycemia inhibits gonadotropin secretion in primates by an undefined mechanism. Some evidence suggests that hypoglycemia inhibits gonadotropin secretion independent of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) inhibition. To this end, the effect of insulin-induced hypoglycemia on the luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) response to graded doses of GnRH (25, 75, and 250 ng/kg) administered at 120-min intervals was determined in rhesus monkeys. A crossover design was… CONTINUE READING
