It is indicated that the normal release of insulin can be inhibited by the autonomous nervous system (PNS) and strongly inhibited by the stress hormone norepinephrine. Since chronic stress can be common in big cities, can the inhibition of insulin release, increased conversions of glucose and insulin resistance be possible as a result of increased stimulation of the PNS and excess secretion of stress hormones due to such chronic stress?
This has been suggested. However, this does not occur in isolation. Glucocorticoids are up. Glucagon is up. The stimulus is not constant and therefore hard to quantitate.
