33.Insulin is secreted by the alpha cells of the islets of Langerhans.
34.The absorptive state is directed by an increase in insulin secretion.
35.Insulin increases glucose transport into all tissues.
36.The blood glucose level is the primary controlling factor of insulin secretion.
37.Insulin secretion is decreased and glucagon secretion is increased in response to a fall in blood glucose concentration.
38.Insulin and glucagon secretion are both stimulated by an increase in blood amino acid concentration.
39.Amino acids can be converted to glucose whereas fatty acids cannot.
40.All forms of diabetes mellitus are characterized by a lack of pancreatic insulin secretion.
