Default Effect of Adrenaline on Insulin secretion?

It says in my pharmacology textbook that alpha 2 receptors decrease insulin secretion while beta 2 receptors increase insulin secretion, and then when it enumerates the actions of adrenaline on body metabolism, it says it decreases insulin secretion.
How so?
