Released: Glycogen is complex carbohydrate storage that is broken down in your body and released as 'simple carbohydrates' when your exersise becomes more intense and longer-lasting (usually more than an hour depending on your aerobic fitness).When glycogen stores are "used up"about the 21st or 22nd mile in a marathon u have"hit the wall"...A most umcomfortable feeling! ...Read more
Train: Your body always searches for glycogen first for energy. It is the fastest processed and most available energy source. After glycogen stores are depleted, fat is used as an energy source. Bu this usually takes 45 minutes of sustained activity at a mild to moderate level of intensity. ...Read more
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
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
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?
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
My glycogen level in blood has come low. Its 2.0. All my medical test are ok except this one. Any serious issue?

Storage & Release: Glycogen is a storage form of glucose. Glucagon is a hormone which, like insulin, also comes from the pancreas. When the body needs to utilize its stored glucose, glucagon is released to do it. Glycogen is mostly stored in the liver, but it is also contained in the kidneys and muscle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Maintenance of close: To normal/ normal blood glucose & treatment of other metabolic problems can improve growth & extend lifespan in kids with GSD Types 1a & 1b. Some now live healthier lives into adulthood. GCSF is a medication to increase the number of white blood cells. Managing diet, dental, bone density, kidney, liver, etc. Problems is key.

Von Gierke Disease: Molecular genetic testing for mutations of the G6PC gene on chromosome 17q21 is available. If 1 parent is a carrier, the other parent needs testing. If both are carriers, each fetus. Has a 25% chance of inheriting the mutant gene from both parents, thus having VGD. Prenatal molecular genetic testing of amniotic fluid is also available. Call 1300-88-1362 or see http://m.dna-laboratories. Com. ...Read more
What type of blood test checks for low glycogen stores. I am constantly tired and seem to have an exercise intolerants?

Have you consulted a rheumatologist or neurologist yet? If not, consider seeing one. Do note that there are other potential causes for exercise intolerance which need be considered. ...Read more
