  • Diabetes : How Your Body Handles Glucose

    1339 Words  | 6 Pages

    ask? It’s a lifelong disease that affects how your body handles glucose, a kind of sugar, in your blood. It means the blood sugar or blood glucose is too high. If your body doesn’t make enough insulin, or insulin doesn’t work the way it should, glucose can’t get into your cells. Instead, glucose stays in your blood. Glucose comes from the food you eat. Your blood carries glucose to all the cells in your body. These cells use glucose for energy. Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas. Insulin enters

  • Determination Of Blood Glucose Levels And Qualitative Carbohydrate Tests

    1507 Words  | 7 Pages

    Practical Report (Determination of blood glucose levels and qualitative carbohydrate tests) Introduction: The term ‘’Carbohydrates’’ is defined as the carbon compounds which contains hydroxyl groups in large quantities (King, 2013). Carbohydrates are those organic compounds which have the empirical formula CnH2nOn, or (CH2O)n (Fromm 1997). Carbohydrates are one of the four types of organic compounds in living cells that are produces during photosynthesis and are the important source of energy in

  • A Blood Bag With Two Pipettefuls Of Glucose And Starch Solution

    983 Words  | 4 Pages

    In part I, a dialysis bag with two pipettefuls of glucose and starch solution was mixed. The bag was placed in a beaker of tap water and I2KI solution for 30 minutes. The contents of the bag and the beaker were placed in test tubes and tested through Benedict’s Test for the presence of aldoses - both test tubes tested positive. What was happening when the dialysis bag was in the beaker? The dialysis bag’s material acted as an artificial “membrane”, exercising selective permeability (allowing certain

  • Medical Emergency Characterized By Low Serum Glucose Levels

    1582 Words  | 7 Pages

    Hypoglycaemia is a medical emergency characterized by low serum glucose levels and if not treated correctly, can cause significant morbidity and mortality. (1-6) Hypoglycaemia often occurs as a result of treatment for Diabetes Type 1 and 2, yet can also affect non-diabetic casualties. (1-4, 6-9) This paper will reflect on the pre-hospital clinical management of hypoglycaemia, by critically analysing a large portion of Australian pre-hospital treatment guidelines, in relation to international practices

  • Blood Glucose Viscosity Levels Of Non Diabetics And Diabetics

    1120 Words  | 5 Pages

    Blood Glucose Absorbance Levels of Non-Diabetics and Diabetics Over 120 Minutes After Food Consumption Alexis Lester BSC 120-113 October 27, 2015 Dr. Welch Abstract Individuals with diabetes are affected by elevated blood glucose levels in the bloodstream due to inefficient glucose uptake by cells. Blood glucose levels are influenced by many things, especially meals and their glucose content. Therefore, if diabetics cannot correctly regulate their blood glucose levels, particularly

  • A Brief Note On The Blood Glucose Concentration

    941 Words  | 4 Pages

    person’s ability to handle a certain load of glucose, thus it is important that they have not eating anything that will interfere with the results. Initially, a fasting glucose blood tested is performed. If an individual has high resting blood glucose level, it indicates that their body is unable to produces insulin to regulate normal level of blood glucose. After administrating a small glucose dose, it takes approximately 2 hours for blood glucose levels to return to normal, and much longer to

  • Advanced Biomolecular Sensors : Enhanced Glucose Detection Through Metallic Nanoparticles

    1000 Words  | 4 Pages

    Advances in Biomolecular Sensors: Enhanced Glucose Detection Through Metallic Nanoparticles Nicholas Lopez Boise State University   Abstract Type 2 diabetes is a serious disease that is when a person’s body can’t utilize glucose due to an excess amount of a hormone, insulin, which is present in the blood. Glucose detection is a crucial component to managing and treating Type 2 diabetes. Current commercial glucose detectors that are in use are not accurate enough to rely heavily on, and are dependent

  • Glucose Found to Produce the Most Co2 in Sugar and Yeast Fermintation Experiment

    786 Words  | 4 Pages

    is a process that happens in all living eukaryotic cells. What cellular respiration does is turn food often carbohydrates into energy for our bodies. Cellular respiration starts with a carbohydrates sugar called glucose. What it does is alter and break down the six carbon molecule glucose and altering it creating two three carbon molecules called pyruvic acids in an anaerobic process called glycolosis (Cellular respiration). What this process does is create two ATP molecules which are basically molecules

  • The Effect on the Rate of Respiration of Yeast Cells with Glucose when the Temperature is Varied

    4659 Words  | 19 Pages

    The Effect on the Rate of Respiration of Yeast Cells with Glucose when the Temperature is Varied Aim The aim of the experiment is to investigate the effect of temperature on the rate of respiration of yeast cells with glucose. As yeast cells use up glucose in respiration, carbon dioxide gas is given off. Measurements of the volume of carbon dioxide gas given off within a set amount of time can be used to measure the rate of reaction. A fast rate of reaction would

  • Parental Monitoring Of Blood Glucose

    1443 Words  | 6 Pages

    of these complications in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The invention of Glucose Meter has changed the diabetes care by enabling patients to monitor their blood glucose level according to their diet, medications and activity. control of glycaemia within the established recommended values is a major therapeutic goal for diabetic patients both in the hospital and outpatient setting. Using of self monitoring of blood glucose 9SMBG0 devices will help diabetic patients detect, prevent or manage of hypo-
