Carbohydrate Metabolism: And Its Disorders

Front Cover

Carbohydrate Metabolism and its Disorders focuses on the processes and methodologies involved in carbohydrate metabolism, including detection of diabetes, hypoglycemic syndromes, cardiovascular diseases, and atherosclerosis.
The selection first takes a look at the detection of diabetes in man, hormonal disturbances in diabetes, and hypoglycemia. Topics include indications for testing for diabetes, reasons for early detection, testing for diabetes with tolbutamide, glucagon, corticosteroids, and hypoglycemic syndromes. The book also ponders on the physiological aspects of carbohydrate metabolism in the fetus and newborn and glycogen-storage diseases.
The publication examines dietary intake of carbohydrate in relation to diabetes and atherosclerosis and glucose tolerance in ischemic cardiovascular disease. Discussions focus on epidemiological studies of diabetes and atherosclerosis, overt diabetes mellitus, and effects of selection, age, obesity, and other factors. The book also identifies disturbances of the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates; insulin antagonists and disturbances in carbohydrate metabolism; and glycosaminoglycans in joint disorders.
The selection is a valuable reference for readers interested in carbohydrate metabolism.
