In brief: Sugar production

Glucagon made by the body tells your liver to make more sugar, and when all systems are functioning properly, should not cause 'hyper'glycemia.
..Should result in normal sugars. Bottled glucagon given by injection as a medication an cause transient hyperglycemia because the dose is large, and that is its intended effect.
