Ectopic Lipids in the Pancreatic Alpha Cells Link Insulin Resistance to Hyperglycemia Just as insulin insufficiency can lead to elevated glucagon secretion, preliminary data suggest that impaired insulin action within the -cell can also promote hyperglucagonemia, hyperglycemia, aberrant gluconeogenesis, and excess glucose efflux from the liver. Pancreatic perfusion with anti-insulin serum causes marked hyperglucagonemia, and ablation of insulin receptor from -cells prompts fed hyperglucagonem...
