  • Controlling blood glucose.
    • Diabetes is the inability to control blood glucose.
      • Type 1
        • inject insulin
        • control diet.
        • pancreas doesn't make insulin
      • Type 2
        • Liver stops being insulin sensitive
        • Control diet
        • Exercise
        • Obesity
          • Liver stops being insulin sensitive
  • digestion starch to glucose started in mouth finished in small intestines
    • soluble glucose molecules diffuse into blood
      • Blood sugar levels rise
        • Triggers pancreas to release insulin
          • Insulin causes glucose to move from blood to liver cells
            • Turned into glycogen
              • Blood sugar levels fall
                • Food=starch. enters mouth.
