Fed Up is a documentary made in 2014 that is based on the issues caused by the American food industry. Fed Up, uncovers America’s true secrets about the food people consume every day. More specifically, it reveals the affect sugar has on people’s bodies. As a result, the amount of sugar in food, the bodies consent of glucose, and the satisfying taste it brings, too much sugar could cause certain sicknesses causing the body to not work the way it supposed to.
When you exhale onto a window it steams up because your breath contains water vapour and it causes water vapour to condense forming small water droplets.
Osmosis occurs when water molecules across a membrane move from an area of high water concentration to an area of lower concentration. There are three different concentrations; hypertonic, hypotonic and isotonic. Hypertonic are concentrations that have less water and higher solute concentration. Hypotonic, in addition have more water concentration and lower solute concentration. Isotonic are solution is which water molecules and solute molecules have an equal concentration, that means that the water diffuses in equal rates.
As seen in the diagram above, the body has a set point, a normal range of which the human body is considered healthy and capable of functioning. However, this can be imbalanced by the effects of increased or decreased blood glucose levels (BGL). It is necessary for the human body to maintain a relatively stable balance in it 's blood glucose levels, so when this balance is disrupted, the body acts to return it 's BGL back to the normal range, as if the body does not react to these fluctuations, it may be prone to developing diseases that may result in irreversible consequences on the body, or even death. The primary solutions to re-establishing the body 's BGL is through the work of the liver and pancreas. The pancreas secretes cells called alpha cells, these detect low BGL and in turn send glycogen (the stored form of glucose) into the bloodstream, travelling to the liver, which then converts the glycogen into glucose, then releasing it into the blood stream in order to level out the glucose and insulin levels in the blood (re-establishing blood glucose levels) back to the normal range. When BGLs are high, beta cells (which are also secreted by the pancreas) detect this change. They then release insulin into the blood, the insulin causes the liver to reabsorb excess glucose and convert it into glycogen, the stored form of glucose. Insulin also causes the body 's other cells to take up glucose so that it can be used up, thus lowering the BGL in the body back to the normal
and it's true. A part of the brain cannot burn glucose. Therefore, the liver produces glucose from proteins, if they do not eat carbs.
Diabetes is a group that results in too much sugar in the blood (high blood glucose). One major point I’m going to talk about insulin. And the second major point I’m going to talk about is metabolic disorder. And the third major point I’m going to talk about exercising. And diabetes is one of the most rapidly spreading disease in the world.
After a meal, the digestion of the carbohydrates and sugars in the food releases glucose into the bloodstream. As blood glucose levels begin to rise above the set point of 5mM, the beta cells of the pancreas secrete the hormone insulin (1). The hormone sends a message to the liver that the levels of blood glucose have been detected to be too high. The liver begins the process of glycogenesis, converting glucose into glycogen. Glycogen is then stored in the liver, lowering the blood glucose levels. This results in the blood glucose levels to peak (2) and then fall (3) as the insulin feedback mechanisms work to restore the blood glucose levels to the fasting blood glucose level
Digestive functions in humans is probably not something to which individuals are constantly attentive. The average individual will just enjoy a meal to satiate their appetite and maybe enjoy the flavors of the meal being consumed without giving much thought to the digestive processes that occur involuntarily within the body to sustain life. Without normal functioning of the digestive tract, many problems can present themselves and cause the individuals being affected to become more aware and attentive to keeping a homeostasis and maintenance in the presence of a pathological condition (which will be discussed later). A brief overview of normal digestive function will follow a straight forward pathway beginning with ingestion via the mouth where
LCHF which stands for Low Carb High Fat, means you eat less sugar and starch, which together are called carbohydrates, avoiding all food and drinks with high sugar but also starchy foods such as pasta, bread and rice because this type of food is converted to sugar digestion. LCHF involves eating as usual but to try to replace the carbohydrates to fatty food. For lunch, for example, you eat a salad with a fat dressing. With LCHF replaces one carbohydrates with fatty foods, it does not take much because fatty foods are very filling and rich in energy
In our body the blood glucose levels are regulated by a negative feedback system. The negative feedback system is a type of homeostatic system, and allows the body to maintain homeostasis. It detects changes, using the sensor, (which in glucose regulation is the pancreas recognizing the change in levels of glucose in the blood), caused by the stimulus. Then the control centre (pancreas) which is the response to the change, sends a message to the effector (liver) to counteract the change. The effector acts about to bring the body to its original set
When you eat carbohydrates, your body responds by breaking them into simple sugars called glucose. The glucose enters your bloodstream where it delivers energy to cells. Insulin pushes the glucose through your bloodstream to the cells. Your body can either use the glucose right away or hide it away in the muscles and liver until you need it. If the carbohydrate is broken down too fast it is not healthy. If it is pushed too fast by the insulin it can have a negative influence.
The diagram above explains the fact that the lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system and plays three major roles which may include the removal of excess fluids including red blood cells from the body, absorption of fatty acids as well as helping to transfer fatty substances and chyle to the circulatory system. And, it helps in the production of lymphocytes, monocytes, and antibody producing cells which help to strengthen our immune system against any invaders that make us sick. Like the cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system is made up of vessels. Although, it lacks a heart that pumps blood such as what is obtainable in the cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system has got lymph which is produced as blood plasma that is discharged from the capillaries of the circulatory system via skeletal muscle contraction. The lymphatic system has also got valves and lymph nodes to prevent backflow.
The first clinical subjective symptoms that support the diagnosis of type 2 diabetes would be that the patient recent onset fatigue. High blood glucose makes your blood “sludgy,” reducing circulation so cells can’t get the oxygen and nutrients they require. It can also cause fatigue through inflammation. Blood vessels get swollen by the sugar. When this happens, according to new research, immune cells called monocytes come into the brain, triggering fatigue. The second clinical subjective symptom would be blurred vision, the lens of the eye changes shape as it focuses on objects that are close or far away. But when the blood sugar is high, the lens becomes swollen and unable to change shape to focus. The third clinical subjective symptom would be her thirst level has increased and the fourth clinical subjective symptom frequent urination. The tissues are dehydrated when there’s too much glucose in the blood. The body pulls fluid from the tissues to try to dilute the blood and stabilize the high glucose, so your tissues will be dehydrated and send the message that you need to drink more. This is also associated with which increased urination. The fifth clinical subjective symptom would be dizziness which may be caused by low blood sugar also known as hypoglycemia, high blood sugar also known as hyperglycemia, or autonomic dysfunction. The sixth clinical subjective symptom would be numbness
Also, NIDDK (2014) added more causes of type 1 diabetes that include genetic susceptibility, autoimmune destruction of beta cells, and environmental factors. While the causes of type 2 diabetes were genetic susceptibility, obesity and physical inactivity, insulin resistance, abnormal glucose production by the liver, history of gestational diabetes, and beta cell dysfunction. Likewise, gestational diabetes is also caused by insulin resistance, beta cell dysfunction and a family history. Additionally, other types of diabetes are caused by diseases and injuries that damage the pancreas like certain chemical toxins, medications, infections and other
Today, I want to talk to you about sugar a food substance that has for a long time now been classified as a rogue product to our health. All this talk however has ignored the health benefits of sugar to our body which I am going to present to you today. It has been widely argued that sugar actually leads to an individual increasing weight/obesity and diabetes but at the same time, sugar is needed for crucial functions of the body for it to remain healthy in equal terms. Sugar is a disaccharide with two molecules namely glucose and fructose and thus the reason it is called sucrose. Glucose is the molecule that carries the health benefits of sugar as it produces energy facilitating the appropriate functioning of all our body processes. Glucose helps to regulate the body temperature, help the brain in thinking, aids in
