Blood Glucose Regulation: A Summary

The chemical energy in glucose is released by cells during the process known as respiration. It is therefore important that the blood glucose level is maintained at a constant level because if it falls too low cells are deprived of energy, and brain cells are especially sensitive in this respect. If it gets too high osmotic problems occur that may cause dehydration. Blood glucose is formed directly from carbohydrates in the diet or from breakdown of…
