What Happens To Unused Glucose In The Body?

Share on facebook

http://www.rxwiki.com/victoza https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list... Victoza, brand for liraglutide, is a prescription medication used to control blood glucose in people with type 2 diabetes. This medication belongs to a group of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists which work by causing the pancreas to release insulin when blood sugar levels are high. Victoza comes in an injectable form in prefilled, multi-dose pens. It is injected just under the skin, or subcutaneously, once daily. Common side effects include headache, nausea, and diarrhea.

How The Body Controls Blood Sugar - Topic Overview

The bloodstream carries glucose-a type of sugar produced from the digestion of carbohydrates and other foods-to provide energy to cells throughout the body. Unused glucose is stored mainly in the liver as glycogen. Insulin, glucagon, and other hormone levels rise and fall to keep blood sugar in a normal range. Too little or too much of these hormones can cause blood sugar levels to fall too low (hypoglycemia) or rise too high (hyperglycemia). Normally, blood glucose levels increase after you eat a meal. When blood sugar rises, cells in the pancreas release insulin, causing the body to absorb glucose from the blood and lowering the blood sugar level to normal. When blood sugar drops too low, the level of insulin declines and other cells in the pancreas release glucagon, which causes the liver to turn stored glycogen back into glucose and release it into the blood. This brings blood sugar levels back up to normal. Continue reading >>

    So....apparently I have placed my self in a state of ketosis by loosely following the paleo diet....(very limited grains, and or processed foods) I base this on the fact that my wife finds my breath similar to sucking on a sock soaked in paint thinner....
    I have spent some time researching this topic both here on the board and elsewhere on the web....still, I am confused. Some say its bad, some say its not.....some say protein sparing, some say liver damaging.....
    Does anyone really know? Am I in a happy place?... or should I be concerned that my brain and liver are going to revolt against me? I might add that I was not necessarily trying to obtain ketosis....I am 6'3" 200# ~11% BF....so I am not really trying to loose wt...I caught the paleo bug and like how I feel following it....however....if it is causing this ketosis and it is "bad"...maybe I need to re-evaluate or at least adjust what I am doing.
    Anybody have any advice??
    Thanks

    How is your body feeling?
    Do you feel lethargic? Full of energy? Unusual soreness after workouts? etc?
    Do you eat alot of fruit and veg?
    I have done the atkins diet in the past and been in ketosis... I didnt harm my body but it seems its mainly for weight loss? And it seems you dont need weight loss
    I am loosley following paleo in zone and i havent tested if i am in ketosis... would be interesting to see as i have cut all wheat and grains (except corn) for the last week... As for it harming you, i guess you need to work out how your body is feeling... if you are feeling good and healthy and if you are eating alot of veggies and fruit and lean meat... i dont see how it could be damaging to you? your body might just have a higher requirement for carbs?

    Craig "ELI" Stephenson well you must be cycling in and out of ketosis as if your inconstant state of ketosis.. you get a really bad case of brain fog. Out of ketsis, your giving your brain enough glucose/carbs for it to function.
    cardiac arrthymias from electrolyte imbalances, increased risk of osteoporosis from urinary calcium losses, gout, kidney stones and nausea, lethargy and general weakness associated with prolonged ketosis. not many studies address this but there is enough anecdotal events ( mass famines ) that its not a wise thing to in for a prolonged period.

SUMMARY: not under normal circumstances at least. when your body is in a surplus, it will store the fat as fat, and in some cases the excess carbs. but protein has WAY too many pathways of higher priority (muscle building, oxidation, tissue building, glucose conversion, urea excretion etc) for it to become fat. not saying its impossible, but in the average bodybuilder this will not happen, unless all you eat is just protein (like fucking 500g of protein a day on a protein only diet). so dont let people tell you your excess protein will become fat. no. it might MAKE you fat indirectly (by putting you at a super surplus, causing your body to store the other macros at fat), but the protein in itself won't turn into fat. in fact the best thing u can do to lose weight is to eat more protein (whole food sources). it will not only keep you full longer, but will prevent excessive protein breakdown that comes from dieting and training. copiche bitch? $$$$$$$ MY CONTACTS $$$$$$$ Facebook: Jonathan Migan Facebook Fan Page: lowbudgetleanmuscle Twitter: @Team3Darmy Instagram: Jonathanmigan Play Station Network: Jerubbaal89 YGOPRO: ragnarok34 DuelingNetwork: sucemapin Get a FREE Text message Each Time I Upload a Video (US only): http://motube.us/lowbudgetleanmuscle $$$$$$$ COMPANIES I FUCKS WITH $$$$$$ ~GORILLA WEAR Clothing: high quality alpha shit. give these guys a try. : http://www.facebook.com/gorillawearusa Click Here: http://www.gorillawear.com/choose ~BEASTSUPPS: cool supplements and original training gear from my boy Jack.

Does Unused Protein Turn Into Fat?

Protein from the diet supplies amino acids, required for a variety of body functions including making hormones, enzymes and neurotransmitters and building muscle. There are four uses for amino acids once they are absorbed: They are used as energy, are incorporated into structural protein (muscle), produce other compounds or are stored in the form of fat. Amino acids are not the most useful form of energy. The body prefers glucose derived from carbohydrates because they are easier to digest, absorb and use. However, if amino acids are available when glucose is not, the body will use them for fuel. This process is called gluconeogenesis, meaning production of new glucose. Gluconeogensis is not cost-effective for the body because it requires more energy than simply using available glucose. Think of it this way: Using amino acids instead of carbohydrates for fuel is like using a piece of fine jewelry to pay for groceries when you have cash on hand. When muscle is stressed, as in exercise, amino acids are needed to repair and build the tissue to strengthen it. The more this occurs, the more muscle mass is built. Eating more protein alone does not make this happen, although adequate amo Continue reading >>

    Getting sick more often on keto, is it coincidence?

    Almost all throughout last year I was not dieting or exercising at all but was never sick. I (re-)started my Keto diet right after Christmas, and about a week after, I got sick with sore throat/coughing/runny nose. I finally recovered after about 3-4 days. Now (2-3 weeks later), I'm sick again with a sore throat. Can the Keto diet, calorie deficit, or maybe too much exercise be the cause?

  2. Brianterz

    I think its just you man.. i have been on keto for 3+ years now.. havent been sick in 4 years or so

  3. MASSter

    Well this is the time of the year for sickness. Unrelated to diet.

Unused Carbs: What Happens?

What happens to carbs that are unused? Simple and complex. I was always told it pretty much goes straight to fat. Then I've heard that you're an idiot if you think that. -Runescape: Alex_Osu (banned, RIP) New RS Name: Molinus Once carbohydrate enters the system, it has several fates. All generally occur to some extent with any carbohydrate ingestion, although certain processes predominate at all levels, and with small amounts of carbohydrate ingestion, it's primarily a fuel. The fates of carbs are... 1. oxidation as fuel, predominantly through glycolysis, anaerobisis, the citric acid cycle, and oxidative phosphorylation. 3. conversion to other essential carbohydrate/protein molecules for use in processes and synthesis of essential cellular molecules, i.e. glycosaminoglycans, proteoglycans, etc. So yes, enough excess of any fuel molecule leads to storage as fat. Carbohydrate is converted to AcetylCoA, which is a precursor for fat synthesis. Essentially, if you have, say, just 50 grams of carbohydrate, most is going to go to fuel, and much smaller amonuts to fat storage, whereas if you take in, say, 500g, much more is going to be converted to fat What happens to carbs that are unuse Continue reading >>

    Sorry if this doesn't belong in this part of the forum, but it seems better here than the other places in the forum.
    I am having trouble finding a solid answer to this. Everywhere I look online tells me something different. I see some say around 50 mg/dl which I would think is totally hypoglycemic. So I don’t really believe that. I see others saying as long as you are below about 97 mg/dl. I see others that say in the 80s. Some say other things. I just want a straight answer. So I need some advice from a successful keto person.
    What is proper blood glucose levels for someone who is in ketosis? I got this blood glucose monitor and I think it may be defective or just a crappy brand. Yesterday my fasting blood glucose (after a 14 hour fast) was 83 mg/dl. Today (again after a 14 hour fast) was 97. I couldn’t believe it so I took my blood glucose again and it said 92. Then I ate exactly 3 pieces of bacon and a piece of cheese, and two hours later my blood glucose was 102. I thought WTF, so I immediately took it again and it said 109.
    So maybe I have a defective monitor (the Nova Max Plus), but regardless, there is probably at least a little bit of truth to it. But I seriously eat 25 grams or less of carbs per day. Usually less.
    Could someone please explain glucose levels to me in regards to ketosis.

    In the absence of dietary carbohydrates, your body will break down fats and proteins to maintain your blood glucose in the normal range. Here's an explanation:
