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: The age of legal consent in most states is 16. However, beware that if he is 18 there is not a age of legal consent and he could be charged with rape or contributing to the delinquency of a minor if it can be proven the two of you have had intercourse.
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: Glucose. Glycogen is a bunch of glucose molecules strung together in branched chains, unlike starch, which is glucose in long, straight chains. The liver, using Glucagon, a hormone, stores glucose for release later. Glucagon is one of the two main hormones used to control blood sugar.
What is the process of turning glucose to glycogen?
Answer: Glycogen is a highly branched polymeric structure containing glucose as the basic monomer. First individual glucose molecules are hydrolyzed from the chain, followed by the addition of a phosphate group at C-1. In the next step the phosphate is moved to the C-6 position to give glucose 6-phosphate, a cross road compound.Glucose-6-phosphate is the first step of the glycolysis pathway if glycogen is the carbohydrate source and further energy is needed. If energy is not immediately needed, the glucose-6-phosphate is converted to glucose for distribution in the blood to various cells such as brain cells.
Answer: glycogen is a polysaccharide stored and made in the body and is insoluble in water. glucose is a disaccharide i believe and is a sugar that is used for a main source of energy in the body. hope this helps!
Answer: When your body cannot process glucose, the excess glucose is deposited in the blood,thereby raising blood sugar level what in medical term is called Diabetes.The failure is processed glucose is caused by lack of proper insulin secretion.In such cases, insulin injection applied to the diabetic patient to keep his blood sugar to the normal level.
Answer: Every organ is made up of many cells and each of these cells need glucose for the provision of energy. Glucose molecules cannot enter the cells however unless they are each joined with a molecule of insulin. This is why the blood glucose is raised with diabetes. No insulin, then no glucose entering the cells.Hope this helps.
