Tracking side to side is usually not a problem, but there can be variants.

Active inflammation may benefit from local steroid injections. Inflammatory Brown's s Continue reading >>

    The glucose in the body could end up in two forms, either it will be broken down in order to produce ATP molecules and the other form is to be stored in two forms which is either glycogen or fat. If it formed into glycogen, it will be useful in the muscle cells and liver for it will serve as an energy store. If it is formed into fat, it will store a long term energy. So the glucose will either end up as a glycogen or fat in the body of a person who has acquired or built glucose in the body.
