Doctor insights on:
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
Yes: Excess calories of any nature, regardless of the source, will be stored by the body as fat. ...Read more
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
Could asupplement with aminoacids, vitamins(l-carnitine, l-tartaric acid, potassium chloride, l-leucine, isoleucine, valine, nicotinic)cause damage on brain?
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
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
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

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
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
