We previously reported that insulin-induced hypoglycemia (IIH) induces a large increase in plasma ACTH and corticosterone levels in the developing rat during the stress hyporesponsive period and that this effect is mediated, at least partially, by arginine vasopressin (AVP), but not corticotropin-releasing factor. Nevertheless, ACTH secretion in response to… CONTINUE READING
