cells detect an increase in body glucose they release insulin; release of insulin causes an increased movement of glucose into the cells and increased metabolism; normally released when glucose levels are high; it decreased plasma glucose levels by increasing the transport entry of glucose in muscle and adipose tissue by way of nonspecific receptors; it also regulates glucose by increasing glycogenesis, lipogenesis, and glycolysis and inhibiting glycogenolysis Epinephrine Hormone produced in medulla of adrenal gland that affects carbo. metabolism; increases plasma glucose by inhibiting insulin secretion; epinephrine is released during times of stress Insulin resistance Look at definition for type II diabetes Type I Diabetes 10 - 20% of all diabetes; 1 in 600 incidence; Common in children and adolescence; Autoimmune Disease (i.e. person gets sick, makes antibodies –overactive response, increased hypersensitivity, produce antibodies to their own beta cells); result of cellular mediated autoimmune destruction of the beta cells of the pancreas, causing an absolute deficiency of insulin secretion; disease is usually initiated by an environmental factor or infection (usually a virus) in individuals w/ genetic predisposition and causes the immune destruction of the beta cells of the pancreas and therefore a decreased production of

    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.
