Hepatic Glucose Metabolism

After writing about the liver buffers I wanted to understand a bit more on the regulation of gluconeogenesis and buildup of the resulting glucose as glycogen in the liver. I have also written about protein being a supply-driven process with the mechanism intended to increase liver glycogen storage. In order for that supply-driven mechanism toContinue reading “Hepatic Glucose Metabolism”

One of the things I noticed in studying metabolism and the overall functioning of the body, is how important the liver is. A lot of what we do and a lot of what we measure is influenced by the liver and its buffers. Understanding these buffers in conjunction with these measurements may help us aContinue reading “The liver buffer(s)”
