Is it possible that hypovolemic shock be caused by an unbalanced glucagon/ insulin level?

Is it possible that hypovolemic shock be caused by an unbalanced glucagon/ insulin level?

Hypovolemic shock: Hard to answer your question. In diabetic ketoacidosis, Insulin is absent/low, glucagon high, and you can have hypovolemic shock (along with high blood glu, ketones, acidosis, etc). If you have hypovolemic shock from something else (eg. Sepsis), many hormones react to the situation. A minor "imbalance" in insulin/glucagon may alter blood glucose but does not cause shock. ...Read more
