A 43-year-old member asked:
Can you tell me is glucagon or insulin secreted by the pancreas during the fight or flight response?

Glucagon not insulin: The "fight or flight" response is related to secreting adrenaline. Adrenaline can increase glucagon levels, causing blood sugars to rise. Insulin levels do not rise with adrenaline.
