Relative or absolute lack of insulin in humans would result in which one of the following reactions in the liver?



A Increased glycogen synthesis.

B Decreased gluconeogenesis from lactate.

C Decreased glycogenolysis.

D Increased formation of 3-hydroxybutyrate.

Low insulin levels favor the liver producing ketone bodies, using acetyl coenzyme A it obtained from excess fatty acids provided by the adipose. Low insulin also causes activation of hormone-sensitive lipase, decreased glycogen synthesis, and increased gluconeogenesis.
