How can eating carbohydrate build muscle or insulin increases protein synthesis?

How can  eating carbohydrate build muscle or insulin increases protein synthesis?

Everything: You eat is broken down into small building blocks and metabolized into calories of energy. Your body then uses this energy to generate proteins, fats, carbohydrates or whatever else it needs to manufacture. Insulin is an anabolic hormone which does stimulate protein synthesis, but increasing your Insulin levels does not lead to muscle building. ...Read more

Does excessive intake of proteins (free proteins) stored as fat ?

Does excessive intake of proteins (free proteins) stored as fat ?

Yes: Excess calories of any nature, regardless of the source, will be stored by the body as fat. ...Read more

Can vitamin K depletion cause low platelets?

Can vitamin K depletion cause low platelets?

No: Low vitamin k can cause your body to have a difficult time making factors that are important for blood coagulation (factors 2, 7, 9, 10) and can lead to increased bleeding. Platelet numbers, however, should not be affected. ...Read more

Can autoantibodies against glutamine synthetase and/or glutamate dehydrogenase cause glutamate metabolism disorders?

Can autoantibodies against glutamine synthetase and/or glutamate dehydrogenase cause glutamate metabolism disorders?

Still searching: Glutamine synthase is part of the glutamine synthetase family. Ammonia incorporation in animals occurs through the actions of glutamate dehydrogenase and glutamine synthase. Glutamate plays the central role in mammalian nitrogen flow, serving as both a nitrogen donor and nitrogen acceptor. I am unble to find references in my search so far as to autoantibodies to these but see comment. ...Read more

Does exercise increase the storage of glycogen and fat?

Does exercise increase the storage of glycogen and fat?

Exercise: leads to fat oxidation("burning") but that amount is very dependent on the intensity, duration and type and individual fitness level. In terms of glycogen storage, because exercise depletes glycogen stores, it also does lead to increased glycogen storage post exercise. ...Read more

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

How do high blood sugar cause potassium depletion?

How do high blood sugar cause potassium depletion?

Sugar and potassium: Insulin is required for potassium (k) to enter the cells along with glucose (g). If one has high g levels, there is a shortage of effective insulin. K stays in the blood, out of the cells, and it is eliminated in the urine, by an osmotic diuresis due to the high g level. Once g levels are controlled, with insulin, both g and k go into the cells of the body and the osmotic diuresis is ended. ...Read more

Which is rate metabolic disorder 4 hydroxy butyric aciduria?

Which is rate metabolic disorder 4 hydroxy butyric aciduria?

Probable ketosis: Beta hydroxybutyric acid is a compound formed during starvation, or diabetic ketoacidosis as the result of fat breakdown for energy in the absence of carbohydrates the question here is unclear, perhaps re submit? ...Read more

Is serum Osmolality typically elevated in metabolic acidosis/alkalosis and ethylene glycol poisoning?

Is serum Osmolality typically elevated in metabolic acidosis/alkalosis and ethylene glycol poisoning?

Yes: Particularly with ethylene glycol poisoning. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Can magnesium deficiency cause low energy, mood swings? Insulin resis..metformin 1000mg.

Can magnesium deficiency cause low energy, mood swings? Insulin resis..metformin 1000mg.

Yes.: It may cause low energy and irritability but It is very unlikely. You can try taking a supplement which contains Magnesium and see if it changes things. It does not cause insulin resistance. ...Read more

Can adrenal insufficiency deplete steroids in the human body?

Can adrenal insufficiency deplete steroids in the human body?

By definition: Hi. Yes, adrenal insufficiency is the state of the adrenals being incapable of making enough adrenal steroid hormones (cortisol & aldosterone in primary adrenal insuffic. and cortisol only in pituitary/secondary adrenal insuffic.). Obviously no effect on gonadal steroid hormones. ...Read more

How to overcome cellular energy deficiency, resulting from the inability to metabolize sugar?

How to overcome cellular energy deficiency, resulting from the inability to metabolize sugar?

Does not make sense.: "cellular energy deficiency resulting from the inability to metabolize sugar" is, basically, death. Typing this question required metabolizing sugar, so the problem must have been overcome. ...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

What hormone causes glycogen to break down into glucose?

What hormone causes glycogen to break down into glucose?

Glycogen: Glycogen is a storage for glucose and breaks it down - not by a hormone - if glucose levels are beginning to fall. There many articles on the web - some hard to understand - that will give you many things to read if you simply type in "glycogen to glucose". ...Read more
