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.
Answer: If there is too much glucose in the body it is not being converted and stored. This is due to the lack of the hormone insulin produced by the endocrine glands on the pancreas called the Islets of langerhans. A disorder called diabetes mellitus develops where a person may go into a hyperglycaemic coma if too much glucose is present in the blood. They will need insulin injections to help convert the glucose to glycogen in order to be stored in the liver ready for use.
Answer: Glucose levels depend on the amount of sugar in the blood. High blood sugar means you have eaten too much sugar, and vice versa for low blood sugar. Diabetics have to watch their glucose levels carefully.
Answer: It is given when a person is not able to eat or is not allowed to eat. When a patient becomes glucose intolerant, his or her body can no longer utilise the glucose absorbed from the digestive system. Instead, body cells no longer respond appropriately to the insulin secreted by the pancreas and become "blind" to the glucose circulating in the blood. Without medical attention and the appropriate treatment, patients will suffer from unusual chronic thirst, weight loss despite increased appetite, increased production of urine and blurred vision. Even on a treatment regime, poor management may lead to long-term deterioration in kidneys, eyes and limbs to name just a few. Chances of developing diabetic nephropathy, tuberculosis and cataract increases as time since onset of diabetes increase. Thus, empowering the general public with understandings of the diagnosis of diabetes is vital for their own health.
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.Seehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blood_sugar
Answer: A disaccharide called maltose. Two alpha glucose monomer molecules form a 1,4-glycosidic bond during a condensation reaction and the polymer is formed is maltose which is a reducing sugar found in malt sugar. The bond is broken by hydrolysis.
Answer: The purpose of the glucose receptors is to detect blood glucoselevels. The Islets of Langerhorn dispatch alpha cells to detect lowblood glucose and beta cells to detect high blood glucose levels.
Answer: Gatorade Contains good levels of Glucose in it. Also energy drinks contain Glucose. A lot of juices do not contain glucose. They contain fructose which is different. Gatorade I found is one of the cheapest out there.
