Why is it that the more insulin you have, the less growth hormone your body will produce? Is it because the more insulin your body produce the lower the insulin-like growth factor levels?
Also, how are growth hormone levels able to increase if during fasting your body has increased levels of cortisol. From what I understand about cortisol is that it increases blood sugar levels and that the hormone becomes elevated during periods of severe caloric restriction and/or starvation. However, from what I’ve read about growth hormone is that growth hormone levels increases during periods of low blood sugar. This doesn’t make sense to me.
