Italian term or phrase: contro-insulari
Hi everyone, I am working on the translation of some sentences relating to diabetes/insulin. I don't have much context unfortunately and I am struggling with the following:

antagonismo fattori contro-insulari

Can anyone help? Any ideas/suggestions?

TIA

Explanation:
...controinsulari (quelli che si oppongono all'azione dell'insulina ostacolandone l'azione)....

This result is consistent with reports of seasonal variation in blood glucose, with the highest levels occurring in winter, as well as reports that suggest an internal milieu of increased counterinsulin action in winter due to seasonality in counterinsulin hormones, dietary factors, body weight, amount of exercise, growth rates in children, and ambient temperature.

Otherwise, factors that block insulin action

Blood glucose concentrations reflect the balance between skeletal muscle uptake and ambient concentrations of both insulin and counterinsulin hormones.
