[IP] RE: glucagon

<<encouraging my liver to charge in to save the day by dumping a truckload
of glucagon into the mix! >>

Actually, tha alpha cells of the pancreas release glucagon in response to a
dropping BG.  The liver responds to adrenalin release and glucagon by
converting stored glucose (glycogen) into glucose that can be released into
the circulation.
