Enzymes And Their Functions
Only liver functions: The ability to digest food depends of GI enzymes most of which are produced by the pancreas and then activated by bile produced by the liver. Rather than have bile constantly spilling into the GI tract, The GB acts as a reservoir. When food enters the stomach and reaches the SB digestion occurs with bile activated pancreatin, the bile having been stored in the gallbladder which then empties. ...Read more

Different roles: Hi. A quick thumbnail distinction is the pancreas provides enzymes to digest proteins, carbohydrates, and fats into absorbable moieties and the liver provides bile to solublize the things that aren't soluble in a water phase (like fatty acids, fat soluble vitamins, etc) to transport them to the gut lining cells for absorption. Both vital for nutrient absorption. ...Read more

Not in 400 words!!!: In summary: breathing delivers oxygen to the blood. Digestive system delivers nutrients to body to provide energy and gets rid of unabsorbed material (GUT) and toxic waste (liver). Cardiovascular or circulatory takes oxygen from lungs and nutrients from GI and delivers to the body (left circulation). Then carries "used" blood from the tissues back to the lungs to be oxygenated again (right circ). ...Read more
Key is balance: The healthiest approach to take is a balance of lots of different kinds of foods containing complex carbohydrates (ie whole grains) , lean proteins (beans, poultry and fish), and fruits and vegetables. Try to avoid filling up on sugary foods, as these may give you a short burst of energy but will leave you feeling tired and hungry again soon. Drink lots of water too, especially in the heat. ...Read more
Elevated liver enzyme with normal other liver function and normal ultrasound and negative hepatitis b and c virus ??
2 thoughts:: A common cause of asymptomatic elevations in liver enzymes is fatty liver(Non alcoholic fatty liver disease: NAFLD). This is very common in obesity and is considered to be part of the metabolic syndrome. Ultrasound will be "normal" (i.e. falsely negative) in 17% of patients with NAFLD. A less common cause=choledocholithiasis(stones in common bile duct). Often missed on ultrasound. Can be asymptom ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does the human body use fat to be energetic and heal the immune system, heal cancers and viruses, and make body functions more efficient?
It's source of Ener: Fat just like other 2 main nutrients of our diet(Carbohydrates and Proteins) is a source of energy to run the body machine. It does not have any specific or selective role for the other functions(immunity, healing of cancer etc) that you have listed. In this reference we can be healthy/ normal with small amounts of Fat intake unless you do physical labor requiring extra energy. ...Read more
Messengers: Hormones are chemicals released by one part of the body to allow it to communicate with another part of the body. Hormones affect nearly every function of the body such as growth, metabolism, and reproduction. Thyroid stimulating hormone, growth hormone, testosterone, insulin, and adrenaline are just a few examples of the many types of hormones. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Storage & Release : Glycogen is a storage form of glucose. Glucagon is a hormone which, like insulin, also comes from the pancreas.

Glycogen is mostly stored in the liver, but it is also contained in the kidneys and muscle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
