acetyl coa carboxylase

insulin activates phosphodiesterase hence lowers cAMP levels..hence the activity of glycogen phosphorylase wud be low

second insulin increases glucokinase activity but NOT hexokinase..hexokinase is specific to liver and glucose entry into liver doesnt require insulin anyway... and hexokinase is not affected by is only affected by glucose 6 phosphate

insulin favours lipogenesis by providing more glycerol 3 phosphate <frm glycolysis> and NADPH <frm HMP shunt or pentose phosphate shunt> and also increases acetyl coA carboxylase

this persons hypoglycemia cud be either due to a tumour of pancreas, that causes increased levels of insulin and c peptide
