Question Glucagon in Fasting

I just read that intestinal cells have a gene that makes glucagon. the ribosomes make proglocagon that gets broken into GRPP and oxylotomodulin. oxylotomodulin suppresses appetite.

my question......when glucagon is released in fasting state, shouldn't the by products of glucagon synthesis stimulate appetite instead of suppressing it ????
