Anyone know why IGF-1 wouldn't be increased as well? GHRH is stimulated in hypoglycemic states.

nala_ula  Honestly, it's something that has confused me for a while. Why is it that GH secretion is stimulated by hypoglycemia? I mean, it's literally called growth hormone (for growth!), and hypoglycemia, which is basically a "starvation" state, will stimulate this hormone?
shaeking  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3529368/ This might help answer your question. I basically didn't pick IGF-1 because it would increase the uptake of glucose leading to a worsen hypoglycemic state. Didn't have a true reason otherwise.
temmy  IGF-1 is regulated by insulin. so it will be decreased because insulin levels are also low.
nala_ula  thank you @shaeking!
nwinkelmann  I found this and it also explains to a more genetic/cellular level. Essentially, it says that starvation induces some factors that cause GH resistance and IGF1 suppression.

This is a hypoplasia of the pleuroperitoneal membrane. The guts herniate into the thorax, usually on the left side, and result in hypoplasia of the lungs (because they're horribly compressed).

johnthurtjr  Usually on the left because the liver prevents herniation through the right hemidiaphragm +1
