What type of blood test checks for low glycogen stores.. I am constantly tired and seem to have an exercise intolerants?

Which is the best fruit to replenish liver glycogen?

Which is the  best fruit to replenish liver glycogen?

High GI fruit.: The liver normally stores about 350-400 calories of glycogen. The window for repleting it is actually up to 4 hours, but is most efficiently within an hour. Fruit high glycemic indices are most efficiently converted from glucose to glycogen (i.e. Dried fruit, though they are calorie dense). My vote is for a cup of grapes: 27.3 g carb, barely 50 calories, fun to eat. ...Read more

Is there a good diet plan for glycogen storage disorder type IX?

Is there a good diet plan for glycogen storage disorder type IX?

Sure: There are excellent diets designed for all different types of storage disorders. However, very few people are well versed in what these diets consist of. Find a dietician associated with a genetics center or with a pediatric hospital that deals with these disorders frequently, like Cleveland Clinic, Childrens Hospital of Philidelphia, Mayo, Waisman Center to name a few. ...Read more

Does insulin makes the cells to absorb glucose without converting it into Glycogen ?

Does insulin makes the cells to absorb glucose without converting it into Glycogen ?

Be good 2your liver: Insulin causes skeletal muscle and fat cells to absorb blood glucose. This glucose often comes from the liver after glycogenolysis. This is the breakdown of glycogens, which are the sugars your liver stores in long chains to use later. the release of blood sugar from these glycogen chains is done via the enzyme glycogen phosphorylase. ...Read more

Do you know if adult pompe disease is caused by a sudden mutation or a long build up of glycogen?

Do you know if adult pompe disease is caused by a sudden mutation or a long build up of glycogen?

Long build up: I'm not a geneticist; and, there are good references on this subject easily available on the net. However, a quick answer is long build-up. The disease is viewed as constitutional (born-in) and not a later development of a "sudden mutation". If you are really interested, do your homework on the subject by looking at NIH and other sites. ...Read more

Is there treatment for depleted glycogen in the muscles?

Is there treatment for depleted glycogen in the muscles?

Carbo Bonking: The treatment is to restore the glycogen back into the muscle. The fastest, safest way is eat foods with a high glycemic index. These foods will break down quickly, causing an increase in blood glucose. The glucose will then be returned to the muscle for storage in the form of glycogen. What are these foods you ask? Cereals, white bread, rice and most snacks just to name a few. ...Read more

I workout verry intensely 4 hours a day, i started feeling low energy , is there a condition where the glycogen stores are depleted? Recovery time?

I workout verry intensely 4 hours a day, i started feeling low energy , is there a condition where the glycogen stores are depleted? Recovery time?

Be careful!: It's very hard to deplete glycogen stores (unless you are on a zero carbohydrate suicidal diet) extreme physical stress may, however, cause a release of myoglobin (muscle protein) into the blood, and myoglobin is very toxic to the kidneys; it may cause acute renal failure, and one of it's signs is -- very low energy. Be careful! ...Read more
