which one of the following stimulates both insulin and glucagon secretion,

1)hyperglycemia

2)somatostatin

3)high protein meal

4)hypoglycemia

5)GIP (INTESTINAL HORMONE)





  #2

protein meal


  #3

GIP of course


  #4

Tha answer is High Protein meal.

High protein meal especially rich in Arginine stimulates both Insulin N Glucagon.

GIP Stimulates only Insulin BUT NOT Glucagon.

Somatostatin inhibits both Insulin N glucagon

Hyperglycemia stimulates insulin,inhibits glucagon and vise versa.
