Describe how the hormones of the pancreas regulate the concentration of glucose in the blood (4 points). Insulin is used by the pancreas in response to when the body’s level of blood glucose is too high, and glucagon is inhibited. Insulin performs the job of taking glucose into the liver and helps store glucose as glycogen within the body. When the blood glucose level of the body gets to low the body will inhibit the secretion of insulin, so that glucagon can do its job. What glucagon does is it takes the stored glycogen and lets it be released back out into the bloodstream so the body can have more energy.
The glucose in your blood comes from carbohydrates in your food. Carbohydrates include sugar and starchy foods like: bread, pasta and rice. Keywords: Carbon dioxide, Glucose, Water, Oxygen and energy. Word and Symbol equations: Glucose + oxygen = Carbon dioxide + water C2H12O6 + 602 = 6CO2 + energy (ATP) Task 2 – Investigating Respiration You identify Carbon dioxide gas by putting a lighted wooden splint in a test tube of carbon dioxide and carbon dioxide turns limewater cloudy white.
11.3.Glucagon Glucagon is a hormone produced by the alpha cells of the pancreas. Glucagon possesses adverse effects of insulin. So in regulating the blood glucose level, the pancreas produces both insulin and glucagon. This hormone is produced after the meal and during your sleep time. It is the glucagon that helps the liver to break down the food you eat to manufacture glucose.
(2 pts) Cholesterol provides a barrier of protection for the cells in our body. The second function of cholesterol is that it helps with digestion by creating bile that comes from the liver to help digest the food we eat. 4. What are lipoproteins made of? (2 pts) Lipoproteins are made of triglycerides and cholesterol on the inside and phospholipids on the
First educating the patient on type 1 diabetes and urinary tract infection would be verbally implemented. Once the patient has a background on what was happening to their body education on the medication that would need to be taken to control type 1 diabetes and fix the urinary tract infection would be explain. Then how to appropriately inject insulin and take blood sugar would be taught and ways of how to prevent a urinary tract infection for the future would be addressed. Lastly, the proper diet for a diabetic would be addressed. Written instructions would be given to the patient and a follow up date would be made to evaluate and see how the patient is handling all of the new medication and patient teaching (Vera, 2013,
Acne Diet: Healthy Eating = Healthy Complexion Science has yet to explain the direct relation of acne and a person’s diet but evidences are starting to pile with regard to the pros and cons of eating particular kinds of food. Based on some clinical researchers, it seems justifiable to consume a low-glycemic diet that is filled with lots of vegetables and fruits. Omega-3 fatty acids are also a must in a person’s diet, whether or not that person has acne or not. Supplementation is also highly recommended especially for zinc gluconate (about 30 mg daily). Does this mean that acne diet is now achievable?
PURPOSE At the end of this presentation, the audience will be informed on how acupuncture works in treating diabetes. INTRODUCTION In normal body mechanism, consumed carbohydrates pass through stomach and enter blood stream to body’s fat and muscle cells. However sugar cannot enter these cells without the help from insulin ¬– a hormone allowing sugar to enter into mentioned body’s cells. In a person with diabetes, insulin produce by pancrease is not enough or body cells did not respond to insulin causing sugar concentration in the blood elevated. Overtime, it will lead to diabetes.
Why do we need it? Medical term of sugar is glucose, which we get from food and our liver. To make it easier to understand, glucose it a fuel needed to produce an energythat helps body tissues to build up our muscles. There is number of risk factors of diabetes already known for society, such as: family history, genetics, age, geography. If any of your family members have diabetes, your risk factor is slightly higher to get both types of diabetes.
Carbohydrates include a little bit of sugar with your body is just for energy and nutrients to maintain a good health. There are many ways to treat Type 2 diabetes. One is that you have to eat a lot of healthy foods. So that means you could only have fast food once in awhile. According to Mayo Clinic You have to take your insulin pen after you eat a meal or snack.You check your blood sugar to make sure it is neutral.
3. The calcium levels in the blood and bones are being controlled and regulated by the parathyroid glands. Parathyroid glands are next to and sometimes inside the thyroid glands. Parathyroid glands are small glands in the endocrine system that control how much calcium is inside our bones, which affects how much calcium is in our blood. Calcium control is important because it lets the normal conduction of electric currents to run in our nerves and is also, the main element that causes our muscles to contract.
Finally, Rohrig uses rhetorical questioning to persuade the reader to agree with his argument that food coloring plays an important role in the foods that we eat. He asks the readers to consider whether they “would you drink black water? Clear Pepsi? How about using pink butter or green ketchup?” in a way that engages the audience. By asking these questions, Rohrig causes the reader to start thinking about the importance of food coloring in food and drinks.
For example, most doctors recommend increasing carbohydrate consumption and decreasing protein and fat. Why is this bad? Because carbs are made of SUGARS, so if you have a problem in dealing with sugar in your blood, like diabetes, it makes no sense to increase its consumption. Doctors are not the main problem that is not the message being sent. The message is that there is things can be done to combat diabetes, it is your responsibility to ask your doctor for your options if they do not tell you.
Dr. Lustig’s main focus throughout the presentation was the effects of fructose on the epidemic of obesity. He explains how we as a society place so much stress on fat intake and calories in versus calories out that we tend to neglect what is actually in our food. With much research, it has been determined that fructose does, in turn have an effect on the obesity epidemic. Throughout the lecture, many examples from this research show our biochemical response to our modern diets and are used to explain Dr. Lustig’s point of fructose poisoning. He begins to construct his point by describing how our caloric intake or food intake has consistently gone up over the years and fat intake has gone down, but obesity has continued on a dramatic incline.
