  • Answer: Glucose is a kind of sugar that your body needs and categorizes as "food". Glucose is what makes up your blood sugar level.

    If your blood sugar is too low, your pancreas detects this and releases the hormone insulin. This hormone travels aroudnt the body to get to the liver. The liver detects the insulin and takes glucose out of your blood and stores it as glycogen. Glycogen is essentially glucose in strings which the Liver stores for later use when the body is in need of glucose. This happens when the body detects the presence of Glycogon.

    Whenever your blood has too low sugar levels the pancreas releases a hormone called glycogon which then travels to the target organ, the Liver. The Liver, then detects the presence of the hormone glycogon, and uses up its reserves (glucose). The glucose is now sent out into your bloodstream which stabilises your sugar levels.
