Study group discussion: Somatostatin

What is the function of the hormone somatostatin? In relation to the regulation of blood sugar level?

Somatostatin is the hormone which keeps the blood glucose level smooth... Prevents fluctuation.

It inhibits both insulin as well as glucagon release, plus decreases the overall transit time of food in your GIT

Somatostatin is the reason why you need only three meals a day... It doesn't allow all the glucose to enter your body at once and maintains a continuous supply.

There is something a professor always says, "Somatostatin never met a hormone it didn't like to inhibit."


True. I haven't come across one thing it stimulates ^_^"
