  • Answer: Eating alot of food (i.e mainly sugars and carbohydrates) can cause your blood glucose levels to rise. this can be seen shortly after eating a meal, however this is usually kept in check by your pancreas via the release of insulin and decreased release of glucagon.
    Insulin is responsible for increasing the rate of storage of sugars, fats and amino acids into your liver, muscles and adipose tissue. thus if there is a problem with the regulation of insulin (ie. Diabetes Mellitus type 1 and 2 where the body does not respond to high levels of glucose/ the pancreas cannot release insulin despite the body recognising the high glucose levels) then this can cause unsafe levels of glucose in your blood.

    Another reason would be high/uncontrolled levels of glucagon in the blood (hyperglucagonemia) cause by tumours of the pancreas which causes increased release of glucagon, and thus increased release of glucos from the muscles, adipose tissue and liver. this is especially true in the case of tumours of the alpha cells of the pancreas which produce glucagon. however this is not very common.
    Drugs like Beta blockers and corticosteroids can also lead to hyperglycemia, and illness such as cushings disease, and stroke can also cause it.

  • Answer: Plasma makes up 55% of the volume of the blood.Glucose content in blood cells is different (smaller) than the glucose content in plasma. So the average glucose content in the whole blood is different from both (lies in between).
    To get an approximate plasma glucose value, multiply the whole blood value by 1.15.See
  • Answer: Insulin molecules bind to glucose receptors
  • Answer: I have seen a glucose level of 1800 in my career.
  • Answer: Insulin is released by the pancreas and enters the blood, delivering glucose into cells for use (therefore lowering your blood glucose level). In some cases, like in a person with diabetes, glucagon is released and lowers blood glucose levels.
  • Answer: Insulin is an enzyme produced by the pancreas that allows glucose to pass from the blood through the cell walls so that it can be used by the cells for energy. By assisting the removal of glucose from the blood, it (along with an enzyme called glucagon, produced by the liver) controls glucose levels in the blood.

  • Answer: Insulin can be used to lower BGL and glucagon to raise BGL. Simply eating carbohydrate rich foods can do the trick of raising BGL. But hormones like insulin are required to dramatically lower BGL. Exercise lowers BGL found at a much slower rate.
  • Answer: The hormonal response to decrease in blood glucose is glucagon.... which actually increases the blood glucose level...
  • Answer: the body absorbes sugar to store for energy as soon as it leaves the stomach to go through the intestimds I so I would say after u eat if u eat sugar, u would feel a rush within the minute so imagine how fast ur,body absorbs glucose
  • Answer: Glycosylation of hemoglobin, and other proteins, takes place over time. That is why concentration of glycosylated hemoglobin is used to determine whether high blood sugar level seen in other tests is recent or has been present for a long time. To put it simply, if a patient has a high glucose level, you cannot tell whether it is a problem, or it is just that the person has eaten a while back. On the other hand, if the glycosylated hemoglobin level is high, you know for sure it is a long-term problem.
  • Answer: pamcreas secrets hormone insuline which plays a major role in controling blood sugar level, mechanism-the concept is glucose metabolism happens inside cell where as absorption occurs in intestine, insuline controls both for maintaining of sugar level.insulin acts a n important role in the process in which glucose enter inside cell as a result blood glucose level decreases in other hand maontain sugarlevel as per body requirement by retirding cellabsofption and nhancing intestinal absorption
