6. Regulation Of Blood Glucose

Processes in which simple substances are built into more complex ones. Requires energy. Processes in which complex organic compounds are broken down into simple ones. Reactions that produce energy that is stored for later release in a molecule called ATP. Why must blood glucose levels be regulated? Glucose is the preferred energy source for the brain, and must be supplied constantly to it. Explain briefly how nutrients are used to supply energy to the body glucose is an important intermediate compound in the interconversions of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins. These conversions can occur after digestion and virtually all the molecules in the body are continually being broken down and rebuilt breakdown of glycogen in the liver to glucose. formation of glucose in the liver from fat and protein molcules polysaccharides and disaccharides are hydrolysed into monosaccharides glucose, fructose and galactose. Virtually all fructose and galactose is then converted in the liver to glucose. Carbohydrates in the form of glucose or glycogen are important energy sources. Glucose is the preferred energy source for cells, and the fate of absorbed glucose depends on the current energy needs of Continue reading >>
