How Do Our Cells 'burn' Glucose To Produce Energy? - Quora

Answered Jan 28, 2017 Author has 239 answers and 397.1k answer views Your body needs glucose to obtain the energy to function. Glucose is obtained by the body through eating carbohydrates. In each gram of carbohydrates you consume there are four calories worth of energy. Once ingested into the body, special enzymes in the digestive system break down the carbohydrates you have eaten into simple sugars called glucose. This breaking down process allows the body to access the calories of energy contained in the carbohydrate. After eating a meal, the body goes to work to break down the carbohydrates to produce glucose. This glucose is released into the bloodstream, raising your blood sugar levels. For the cells to access the glucose in the bloodstream, your pancreas must produce a hormone called insulin. As your blood glucose levels start to rise, the pancreas is triggered to release insulin into the bloodstream. Without insulin the cells will be unable to absorb the glucose needed to obtain energy. Problems with insulin either occur because there is not enough insulin being produced by the body, or the cells have become resistant to insulin. These problems are symptoms of a disease ca Continue reading >>

    What are hyperkalemia and metabolic acidosis?




    1 Answer







    Hyperkalemia = high potassium levels in the blood. Commonly due to renal failure- kidneys not able to get rid of potassium so it builds up in your body. Hyperkalemia can be fatal because it causes heart arrhythmias including ventricular fibrillation.

    Metabolic acidosis is also a result of renal failure and is due to the kidneys not being able to excrete enough acid. Normally the pH of your blood is 7.35–7.45, so anything below 7.35 is considered ‘acidosis'. Metabolic in this case simply means caused by the kidneys, as opposed to ‘respiratory' acidosis which is due to airway obstruction and not being able to breathe out enough CO2

Diabetes Statistics, Facts and Myths - Insulin Myths and Facts. Reverse Your Type 2 Diabetes == http://bit.ly/diabetesbreakthough Many presumed "facts" are thrown about in the paper press, magazines and on the internet regarding diabetes; some of them are, in fact, myths. It is important that people with diabetes, pre-diabetes, their loved ones, employers and schools have an accurate picture of the disease. Here are some diabetes myths: People with diabetes should not exercise - not true. Exercise is important for people with diabetes, as it is for everybody else. Exercise helps manage body weight, improves cardiovascular health, improves mood, helps blood sugar control, and relieves stress. Fat people always develop type 2 diabetes eventually - this is not true. Being overweight or obese raises the risk of becoming diabetic, they are risk factors, but do not mean that an obese person will definitely become diabetic. Many people with type 2 diabetes were never overweight. The majority of overweight people do not develop type 2 diabetes. Children can outgrow diabetes - this is not true. Nearly all children with diabetes have type 1; insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas have been destroyed. These never come back. Children with type 1 diabetes will need to take insulin for the rest of their lives, unless a cure is found one day. Don't eat too much sugar, you will become diabetic - this is not true. A person with diabetes type 1 developed the disease because their immune system destroyed the insulin-producing beta cells. A diet high in calories, which can make people overweight/obese, raises the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, especially if there is a history of this disease in the family. Diabetes diets are different from other people's - the diet doctors and specialized nutritionists recommend for diabetes patients are healthy ones; healthy for everybody, including people without the disease. Meals should contain plenty of vegetables, fruit, whole grains, and they should be low in salt and sugar, and saturated or trans fat. High blood sugar levels are fine for some, while for others they are a sign of diabetes - high blood-sugar levels are never normal for anybody. Some illnesses, mental stress and steroids can cause temporary hikes in blood sugar levels in people without diabetes. Anybody with higher-than-normal blood sugar levels or sugar in their urine should be checked for diabetes by a health care professional. Diabetics cannot eat bread, potatoes or pasta - people with diabetes can eat starchy foods. However, they must keep an eye on the size of the portions. Whole grain starchy foods are better, as is the case for people without diabetes. One person can transmit diabetes to another person - NOT TRUE. Just like a broken leg is not infectious or contagious. A parent may pass on, through their genes to their offspring, a higher susceptibility to developing the disease. If you have diabetes you cannot eat chocolates or sweets - people with diabetes can eat chocolates and sweets if they combine them with exercise or eat them as part of a healthy meal. Diabetes patients are more susceptible to colds and illnesses in general - a person with diabetes with good diabetes control is no more likely to become ill with a cold or something else than other people. However, when a diabetic catches a cold, their diabetes becomes harder to control, so they have a higher risk of complications. Please LIKE SHARE AnD sUbScribe !!!.

Facts About Diabetes And Insulin

Diabetes is a very common disease, which, if not treated, can be very dangerous. There are two types of diabetes. They were once called juvenile-onset diabetes and adult diabetes. However, today we know that all ages can get both types so they are simply called type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Type 1, which occurs in approximately 10 percent of all cases, is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system, by mistake, attacks its own insulin-producing cells so that insufficient amounts of insulin are produced - or no insulin at all. Type 1 affects predominantly young people and usually makes its debut before the age of 30, and most frequently between the ages of 10 and 14. Type 2, which makes up the remaining 90 percent of diabetes cases, commonly affects patients during the second half of their lives. The cells of the body no longer react to insulin as they should. This is called insulin resistance. In the early 1920s, Frederick Banting, John Macleod, George Best and Bertram Collip isolated the hormone insulin and purified it so that it could be administered to humans. This was a major breakthrough in the treatment of diabetes type 1. Insulin Insulin is a hormone. Hormones are chemica Continue reading >>

    Cyclical ketogenic diet, carb up period question

    Hi all, about to being my venture into lands of Keto dieting, ive read copious amounts of articles, posts and threads about this diet, and ive had about 98% FOR the diet so thats good enough for me. although my question is regarding the carb up period in the CKD, if your body feels sluggish and your brain is foggy during the transition into ketosis which (depending on the person) takes a couple of days, if you start on a monday and take 2 days to get into ketosis (those 2 days you feel sluggish and brain foggy) then 3 days Wednesday,Thursday, Friday your feeling perfectly fine, and then saturday you start your carb up to fill your muscles for the next week. My understanding with this is that the carb up will through you out of ketosis, so at the end of the carb up period you begin restrciting again and getting back into ketosis, now maybe im being sooky because i have no idea what the transition into ketosis feels like but i dont particularly want to feel like **** for 1/4 to 1/3 of my week for however long i do the keto diet.
    PS. please feel free to correct me in whatever i am wrong in (as long as you provide feedback)
    Regards, Hafey
    ALL ADVICE WELCOME!!!

    Honestly this feeling you talking about is not that bad. I would definatly say everyone is different..Definatly worth it, for most and all of us on the diet. Sometimes i dont feel it at all, i just feel OK then i feel good or normal when in ketosis. Soemtimes it hits me a little harder...Just try it for your self. Caffeine helps. And uping the fat and tasty faty meals helpes too.

  3. DMurph51

    first, if you're a normal, healthy person (note: being obese does not count as a health issue), why run a ketogenic diet? the same results will be had, assuming the same calorie deficit (ie. 500cal under maintenance) on a carb based diet. keto is not magic by any means.
    second, your body becoming fat adapted (the "induction" to ketosis, with the induction symptoms as you mentioned) typically lasts more than one week, especially if you have never run a ketogenic diet before hand. do not carb load until the induction symptoms have subsided. if you never experience induction symptoms (as i didnt when i ran the diet), it is best to wait 4 weeks from beginning the diet to begin carb loading. your body will be fat adapted by that time.
    third, the most important aspect of the carb load is the depletion workout prior to the start of the carb-load. many people do this part wrong, in the way which the volume at which they train is too low.
    according to another book by lyle mcdonald (author of the Ketogenic Diet), the Ultimate Diet 2.0, to properly deplete the muscle of a typical male (i cant recall the stats), it is suggested that per 8 exercises targeting different muscles (iirc: quads, hams, pecs, lats, shoulders, calves, bis, and tris) 20 sets should be completed with a rep range of 12-15 reps, at a manageable working weight, to mostly deplete muscle glycogen. this totals a minimum of 160 sets, with a range of 12-15 reps for each set. if your purpose of following this diet is only to lose weight, it is best to spread out this grueling depletion over the course of a week, and not leave it all to be completed the day of the carb load.
    and when it finally comes to eating the carbs during the carb load, follow the chart at the end of this guide: http://www.simplyshredded.com/resear...-mcdonald.html

weat glucose sensor Can Monitor Blood Glucose With Your Sweat | wearable glucose meter | Sweat patch It is known that, from a small amount of blood can be used to measure the quantity of blood sugar, but now South Korea specialists have been successful in developing a wrist belt for measuring the amount of blood sugar to measure the sugar volume with the help of sweat. Specialists of the National University of South Korea in Seoul have made wrist bandages, after a minor change, it can also be applied to the use of fine syringe needles, which can inject medicine by detecting the increased quantity of blood sugar. Commenting on this invention, Dr. Paul Jenkins, Sweat patch accurately calculates blood glucose levels and administers metformin in mice: https://www.diabetes.co.uk/news/2017/... London Endocrin Center's Expert, says that this is an interesting concern for controlling diabetes, if it is useful after mass testing, it will provide great benefits to the diabetic patient. This will alleviate the painful process of inserting needle to detect sugar level. It is tied to the upper part of the arm and notes the amount of blood sugar in the sweat quickly and efficiently. A recent study has revealed that it shows results like strip blood sugar standard tests and tells how much medication should be taken to keep blood sugar normally. Now, there is no need of strips and tied band is enough to note the blood sugar volume in blood. Sweat patch blood glucose monitor could replace finger prick tests: https://www.drwf.org.uk/news-and-even... There are 20 million sweat glands found in our body, which secrete that sweat in both situations of exercise and comfort . Glucose is also secreted along with sweat, which reflects the quality of sugar in a proper manner, it has to wear 15 minutes for accurate reading, and it requires only 10 mili litre of sweat.

Glucose

Glucose is a carbohydrate, and is the most important simple sugar in human metabolism. Glucose is called a simple sugar or a monosaccharide because it is one of the smallest units which has the characteristics of this class of carbohydrates. Glucose is also sometimes called dextrose. Corn syrup is primarily glucose. Glucose is one of the primary molecules which serve as energy sources for plants and animals. It is found in the sap of plants, and is found in the human bloodstream where it is referred to as "blood sugar". The normal concentration of glucose in the blood is about 0.1%, but it becomes much higher in persons suffering from diabetes. When oxidized in the body in the process called metabolism, glucose produces carbon dioxide, water, and some nitrogen compounds and in the process provides energy which can be used by the cells. The energy yield is about 686 kilocalories (2870 kilojoules) per mole which can be used to do work or help keep the body warm. This energy figure is the change in Gibbs free energy ΔG in the reaction, the measure of the maximum amount of work obtainable from the reaction. As a primary energy source in the body, it requires no digestion and is often Continue reading >>

    Read: Achieve Ketosis in under 24 hours.

    Purpose
    I've been seeing an abundance of posts about people concerned in getting into Ketosis as quick as they possibly can. While some individuals prefer not to spend their glycogen stores early and to gradually roll through the week, other's want the snippy snappy get into Keto to start burning fat. People talk about adjusting ratios, eatings loads of fat, or just being plain lucky. Well thats not the case!
    What will get you into Keto is eating normally what you would eat in Keto phase, and plain EXCERCISE! Not a suprise, excercise will burn up your glycogen, depleted glycogen stores = Ketosis time! In order to successfully get into Ketosis in under 24 hours, you need to do a good deal of excercise! It's not extremely difficult to do, and the following has always worked for me:
    1. Resistance Training
    About 35-45min resistance training (weights), (my recommendation is) with 8-10 reps, minimum of 20 sets total and 6 different excercises (4 sets per excercise). This resistance training should not be a walk in the park, nor should it be something extremely difficult, just leave it intense, I usually aim for 8 reps, but if you can do more than 10 then you should up the weight. Or of course, you can do your own regiment of weight lifting. This should be performed before cardio.
    2. Cardio
    You want a good 25min+ cardio session after your resistance training to burn up some more glycogen. Jogging/running is fine, eliptical is fine, but I'd personally recommend the stationary bike as you'd get a minor leg workout and you'd burn up some glycogen there. Choose med-high intensity, but the workout shouldn't be to the point where you barely could do it and you're struggling, just intense enough to feel your legs a little bit .
    Note: I choose high intensity on stationary bike because I work out my legs on the last day of Keto, rather than doing a full body workout. It's practically a full-body workout in it's sense, it's a great deal of your body, so I usually find excellent results with doing legs rather than a full body.
    If it didn't work out for you...
    You need to re-evaluate your diet as something is messed up and you need to look closely at possible culprits: too many carbs, perhaps the artifical sweetners or that diet soda. If it is nothing in your diet, re-evaluate the intensity of your workout.
    I will put this in my article along with other information in a few weeks. I felt it was an important topic to cover as it was a frequently asked question.
    Here's my article, it will most likely cover any of your lingering questions!

    Try ditching the diet sodas until you get into Keto. As far as the Ketosix go, you only need to pass it through the stream of urine, and you are looking for any tint of pink, it's not necessary to have dark purple.
