Connections Of Carbohydrate, Protein, And Lipid Metabolic Pathways

Connecting Other Sugars to Glucose Metabolism Sugars, such as galactose, fructose, and glycogen, are catabolized into new products in order to enter the glycolytic pathway. Learning Objectives Identify the types of sugars involved in glucose metabolism Key Takeaways When blood sugar levels drop, glycogen is broken down into glucose -1-phosphate, which is then converted to glucose-6-phosphate and enters glycolysis for ATP production. In the liver, galactose is converted to glucose-6-phosphate in order to enter the glycolytic pathway. Fructose is converted into glycogen in the liver and then follows the same pathway as glycogen to enter glycolysis. Sucrose is broken down into glucose and fructose; glucose enters the pathway directly while fructose is converted to glycogen. disaccharide: A sugar, such as sucrose, maltose, or lactose, consisting of two monosaccharides combined together. glycogen: A polysaccharide that is the main form of carbohydrate storage in animals; converted to glucose as needed. monosaccharide: A simple sugar such as glucose, fructose, or deoxyribose that has a single ring. You have learned about the catabolism of glucose, which provides energy to living cells. B Continue reading >>

    Are there any local stores where you can typically buy these things? I've checked walmart.com / walgreens.com / cvs.com / target.com and haven't found much. I can buy them easily online, but I'm curious what level I'm at right now.

  2. throwaketone

    Cool, I didn't think to check there. Are these usually specific for a given blood glucose meter / device? (I need to pick one of those up anyway.) On the sites, I usually just see plenty of the urine ketone test strips.

  3. throwaketone

    Ah, I need a more accurate reading (I want to know BHB mmol/l.) Drove to 2 pharmacies -- walgreens had no idea what I was talking about and pointed me to the strips you piss on. Smith's looked around in the back for a while then told me they could order them online for me.
    Looks like I'll have to test another day. =/
