    Post Insulin






    Is insulin essential for muscle growth? In other words, is it an anabolic hormone?

    Insulin, a polypeptide hormone dissected from the pancreas, is substantially responsible for the uptake of glucose into the cells for its metabolization.The hormone stimulates the synthesis of glycogen, lipids, and proteins and stimulates the transport of potassium and magnesium into the cell.

    It can be argued that Insulin, not testosterone, is the most anabolic hormone in the body.

    You stated on anoher thread that you were a type 1 diabetic and that makes you more knowledgeable than most who aren't diabetics...... but the answer to your question is very complex and depends on what basal insulin you are on.

    For instance, are you on an insulin pump and if yes, what basal insulin are you using? Or are you on a true 24 hours Lantus insulin with humulog before each meal based on carbohydrate exchanges, are you on Novolin 70/30 twice a day, lente, NPH? Do you use regular insulin or humulog insulin as needed? Are you talking about injecting regular insulin which has a different time for maximum onset of action vs. Humulog (I prefer the latter for athletes) ? Thus, this is something you may want to address with your doctor or at least one that is well versed in diabetes and the special needs of athletes such as yourself.

    I read in a post called Diet program by Hugo Rivera :

    "Ideally, these meals are morning meals as during the morning our bodies have a higher insulin sensitivity (the ability of the cells to allow insulin deliver the intended nutrients) due to the overnight fast. A high insulin sensitivity is desirable in order to ensure the carbs get used for either energy production or for glycogen storage inside the muscle as opposed to having them being stored as body fat. "

    If I use something to raise may insulin level. Will it help to keep my "insulin sensivity" always high ?

    Isulin is the most anabolic hormone in the body becasue it mediates uptake of nutrients into the cells (very simple answer...it is much much more complex)

    the problem with insulin is that it is not very androgenic so its anabolic properties are not just associated with muscle...it builds fat too!

    many pro bodybuilders take insulin because it allows them to take in greater than normal amounts of food and actually have it utilized for muscle growth...they stay lean by combining insulin with growth hormone and some type of test (usually winstrol)

    insulin by itself will make you bigger...butmuch of the weight you gain will be fat....not to mention that if you dont know what you are doing you could DIE WITHIN MINUTES of injecting insulin (it drops your blood sugar rapidly assuming you are taking the fast acting type and you can go in to a coma and die)

    stay away from insulin unless you are diabetic...or want to be a pro bodybuilder and have no regard for your health,body,and life.
    My opinions may have changed, but not the fact that I am right.

    When one door closes another door opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the ones which open for us.

    The first statement I completely agree with and I'm glad you brought up. Insulin and BB can be very dangerous.
    The second statement I don't agree with. Sure there are many of BB's who fall into this catagory, but not all pro bb's take it and most do care about health.
