There is no direct link between ACTH  and insulin levels.  Studies have shown cortisol is often normal and much of the measured ACTH  may be inactive. However, we use ACTH as an indicator of control over the PPID.  ACTH is actually  only a small fraction of the hormones released by the intermediate lobe, and all of them can have a negative effect on insulin sensitivity.
