LABORATORY REPORT Activity: Blood Glucose Regulation Name: QuincyDye Instructor: Date: 03.11.2016 Predictions Plasma glucose levels will be highest 1-3 hours after the meal Plasma ketone levels will be highest before the meal (fasting) Plasma insulin levels will be highest 1-3 hours after the meal Plasma glucagon levels will be highest immediately after the meal (0 hr) Materials and Methods Dependent Variable plasma levels of glucose, ketones, insulin, and glucagon Independent Variable food and beverage intake Controlled Variables physical activity, caffeine and alcohol intake, gender, age, BMI 4. Why were physical activity and caffeine and alcohol intake the controlled variables? They increase plasma glucose levels 5. What type of assay was used to measure plasma glucose and ketone levels? Enzymatic analysis 6. What type of assay was used to measure plasma insulin and glucagon levels?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
