  • Essay On Blood Glucose Concentration

    1031 Words  | 5 Pages

    To investigate blood glucose concentrations following food input. This was done by analysing blood glucose concentration data from individuals ingesting various types of food following several hours of fasting. To also examine glucose tolerance test in a clinical context and to further explain glucose concentrations in the body. Results The students who continued fasting after the 12hr fasting period has almost equal amounts of blood glucose concentrations (BGC), during the 90mins period, with

  • The Interaction Of Glucose And Exercise. The Objective

    1274 Words  | 6 Pages

    The Interaction of Glucose and Exercise The objective of this study was to see whether or not exercise has an influence on glucose levels; If it does, then how much does it affect the levels? What is the reason that outcome came about? These are just some of the questions that this study hoped to provoke and shed some light on. Before beginning the experiment, a literature review was conducted in order to gain familiarity with the topic and to build an expectation for the outcome. Several studies

  • The Effect of Water and Glucose Solution During Moderate Intensity Exercise on Post-Exercise Apetite

    1697 Words  | 7 Pages

    Purpose: This test is to investigate the effect of water and glucose solution, during moderate intensity exercise on post-exercise appetite. Methods: A male participate (Age: 24yr; BMI: 20.5kg/m2; VO2max: 57.7ml/kg/min) completed one preliminary VO2max test first. After that, complete two main trials separately with different solution. Participant had to cycling at 55% VO2max for 30 minutes and resting 30 minutes. During the whole experimental period, participant consumed total three times solution

  • Blood Sugar and Glucose Level

    1699 Words  | 7 Pages

    technology in blood glucose monitoring . this will use very low current to measure glucose level from interstitial fluid , and shows the digital reading. Gluco watch works in the principal of Reverse Intophoresis based Glucose Monitoring devise ( RIGMD ). It is programmed to alert the person when the glucose level gets high or low in blood concentration . and helps the person to maintain constant glucose level . It is easy and user friendly ( David Mendosa, 2010 ) GLUCOSE MONITORING It helps

  • Monitoring the Glucose Level of Diabetic Patients

    1004 Words  | 4 Pages

    of the glucose level of diabetic patients is a cornerstone of diabetes care and management. The reliability of the home based glucose monitoring devices is critically important because the whole self-care and management of diabetes depends upon it. But there is still a big question mark on the accuracy of the results of the glucose monitoring devices. The ability of currently marketed glucose monitoring systems to determine the glycemic status of the patient is not very accurate. The glucose monitors

  • The Effect Of Insulin Humalog On Lowering Blood Glucose Level Essay

    827 Words  | 4 Pages

    document is to inform the audience, step by step how Insulin Humalog works in lowering blood glucose level. Introduction to Process Every human body wants to maintain blood glucose (blood sugar) level in normal range (70-100mg/dl). After we eat, the stomach digest food breaking it down into type of sugar, called glucose. Furthermore, this glucose is released into the bloodstream (Figure 1). The rise of glucose level triggers the pancreas, one of the body’s organ, to release insulin, a hormone, it blood

  • The Oral Glucose Tolerance Test ( Ogtt )

    1333 Words  | 6 Pages

    Introduction The oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) is used to measure the response of the body to glucose. More specifically, the test has been used for decades in the clinical as well as experimental environment as an ‘index of the efficiency of the mechanisms regulating the concentration of glucose in the blood’ (Baird et al., 1959). It has proved to be an important tool in the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus, and is commonly used in the screening of gestational diabetes in women. Diabetes mellitus

  • The Concentration Of Glucose And Concentration On The X Axis

    1089 Words  | 5 Pages

    up with the use of glucose standards prepared in the first part of the experiment with the absorbance readings plotted on the Y axis and concentration on the X axis. This standard curve can then be used to help plot and find unknown concentrations for the patient and control samples, it also allows us to determine the equation of the line (y) and the correlation coefficient (R2) which were 2.2447x and 0.9984 respectively (Figure 1.). To determine the concentration of glucose in the blood plasma

  • Monitoring And Controlling Blood Glucose Levels

    999 Words  | 4 Pages

    controlling blood glucose levels to minimize the negative effects of the disease. Because of limitations in diagnostic methods, significant research efforts are focused on developing improved methods to measure glucose. Nanotechnology has impacted these efforts by increasing the surface area of sensors, improving the catalytic properties of electrodes and providing nanoscale sensors. Herein, we discuss the developments in the past several years on both nanosensors that directly measure glucose as well as

  • The Diabetes Association The Blood Glucose Level Should Be Below / Dl

    1501 Words  | 7 Pages

    A portable glucose measuring device is a meter that displays the amount of sugar in your blood. What is glucose? Glucose is sugar that your body uses as a source of energy. You should use this device if you have diabetes or if you need to monitor your sugar level. The device can help you determine what you need to do to stabilize the levels and know if your levels can be dangerous threat to your health. The American Diabetes Association the blood glucose level should be below 100mg/dL before meals
