To be fair it was only a 2-day course, there was a lot of content to cover and  its understandable that the course didn’t go into full nerd-level with detail.
Produced and secreted by the adrenal glands GH’s primary function is to promote  growth of structures within the body. Insulin & Glucagon are pancreatic hormones that controls our blood sugar levels by converting glucose into glycogen for storage when levels are too high (insulin) or taking glycogen stores and turning them into glucose when levels are low (glucagon).

The glycemic index (GI) is a scale used to rank the effect a foods carbohydrates has on raising blood glucose levels after eating. Glucose is normally chosen as the reference food (see GI measurement) as it has the fastest effect of raising blood glucose levels when consumed. Low GI foods rank between 0-55, moderate GI foods between 56-69 and high GI foods are over 70.
Foods positioned low down on the scale are those which are slowly digested and absorbed by the body. Referred to as low GI foods, they produce gradual rises in insulin and blood glucose levels after eating.
High GI foods are quickly digested and absorbed by the body and cause marked fluctuations in blood sugar and insulin levels.
The graph shows the typical effect of low GI and high GI food on blood glucose levels over a 2 hour period. However the high GI food gives rise to a much higher level of blood glucose compared to a low GI food. After 2 hours blood glucose levels are significantly reduced being much closer to baseline before the food was consumed. After 2 hours the blood glucose levels from high GI food is still elevated more than the blood glucose level from the low GI food. When blood glucose goes LOW, however, (such as between meals, and during exercise) more and more glucagon is secreted.
The effect of glucagon is to make the liver release the glucose it has stored in its cells into the bloodstream, with the net effect of increasing blood glucose.

The purpose of the Patient Guide to Insulin is to educate patients, parents, and caregivers about insulin treatment of diabetes. If you are like many people, you may think that osteoporosisa€”a condition marked by low bone mineral density, which leads to lowered bone strength and a heightened risk of fracturesa€”is something you will not have to worry about until later in life.

To be fair for a lot of people knowing that Crossfit elicits a higher NE Response and this in turn can lead to better results is enough;  however, as coaches and trainers I think it is our responsibility to actually understand what is going on and not throw the word around. I was getting concerned about Crossfit putting too much pressure on my endocrine system since I have thyroid problems. Thanks for putting all this info together as I’m skimming through my CF Study Guide right now and was just thinking of the same thing about Neroendocrine and decided to do a google search and ended up clicking on your link first. Like insulin, glucagon has an effect on many cells of the body, but most notably the liver.
Glucagon also induces the liver (and some other cells such as muscle) to make glucose out of building blocks obtained from other nutrients found in the body (eg, protein).
Learn about these diabetic neuropathies: peripheral, autonomic, proximal, and focal neuropathies. As we always do here on EndocrineWeb, wea€™re going to break down that concept for you, and thata€™s why wea€™ve put together this Patient Guide to Treating High Cholesterol and Diabetes.
By reviewing this information, youa€™re taking an important step to learn about diabetes and how insulin controls the disease to help you live a healthier life.
You may feel a lump, notice one side of your neck appears to be different, or your doctor may find it during a routine examination. Here, you'll learn about some of the most important aspects of managing your child's condition. The food culprits are refined and white flour carbohydrates, sugars, sodas, fruit drinks and nutrient-depleted food. Hyperactivity, irritability, grumpiness, depression and inattention may also result. It can go into so many crevasses - some happy, some not, especially when it is not fueled properly.

Laura Thompson, Family Nutritionist and Naturopathic Endocrinologist has a nationwide practice by phone, and locally in Carlsbad, California. The products suggested, are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. If this level falls below normal, a hormone called glucagon is released into the blood by an endocrine organ called the ______ . Both insulin and glucagon are secreted from the pancreas, and thus are referred to as pancreatic endocrine hormones. Above 180 is termed "hyperglycemia" (which translates to mean "too much glucose in the blood"). If the tumor is large, it may cause neck or facial pain, shortness of breath, difficulty swallowing, cough unrelated to a cold, hoarseness or voice change. Great to read some factual info that shows that there are some excellent hormonal benefits to high intensity training that go beyond cortisol.
The picture on the left shows the intimate relationship both insulin and glucagon have to each other. However, there is greater incidence today of high blood sugar, insulin resistance and diabetes than ever before. They do not provide the quality of fuel needed to sustain energy for the body or the brain.
We can choose good food and good nutritional supplements to turn a low blood sugar condition around, or prevent it altogether. If the blood sugar level gets too high, the endocrine organ secretes another hormone called __________ into the blood.
