Question Answer
Gluconeogenesis is a metabolic pathway that results in the generation of glucose from non-carbohydrate carbon substrates such as lactate, glycerol, and glucogenic amino acids
Protein-sparing action is the process by which the body derives energy from sources other than protein. Such sources can include fatty tissues, dietary fats and carbohydrates
Ketosis is a normal metabolic process. When the body does not have enough glucose for energy, it burns stored fats instead; this results in a build-up of acids called ketones within the body
insulin when is it secreted – by the beta cells (a type of islet cell) of the pancreas.
and what does it do to the glucose? Keeps blood sugar from getting to high
glucagon a hormone formed in the pancreas that promotes the breakdown of glycogen to glucose in the liver. when is it secreted – causes the liver to convert stored glycogen into glucose, which is released into the bloodstream.
what does glucagon do to the glucose? causes the liver to convert stored glycogen into glucose
