Prandial regulation of ghrelin secretion in humans: does glucagon contribute to the preprandial increase in circulating ghrelin?

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Glucagon secretion is stimulated by fasting and inhibited postprandially, a pattern that mimics the secretory profiles of both ghrelin and GH. We thus hypothesized that glucagon may be a determinant of the changes in circulating ghrelin and GH that occur in relation to meals. The objective of the study was to explore this hypothesis by determining… (More)
