Introduction to Diabetes Mellitus Lecture 2
Topics to discuss today
1. Carbohydrates in foods. Some foods are made of carbs, some have carbs added to them. (We will do a separate discussion to talk about carbs themselves.)
2. The role of chewing and mixing of saliva with carbs in our mouth.
3. Role of stomach to further breakdown carbs.
4. Pancreatic beta cell's role of releasing insulin when carbs are present in our intestine/GIT. (Summary, we will discuss details in separate lectures.)
5. Absorption of the glucose from the GIT into the blood.
6. Movement of the glucose into the cells and the dependence of this movement on Insulin. Cells that require insulin to get glucose, vs., those that do not need insulin to pick up glucose.
7. A quick note of what happens to the glucose inside the cell. That is, it is further metabolized to finally become ATP.
8. Use of ATP as the final common and universal energy providing molecule for all of our energy dependent processes.
9. Presence of lipids and proteins in the meal and their effect on carbohydrate absorption. (If any.)
10. Can glucose be gotten from proteins and lipids as well?
