Discuss the metabolic scenario of a 35 year old man during early re-feeding to include the hormones involved.
Discuss the scenario during a starvation state. What are the major gluconeogenic precursors? What are the roles of ketone bodies? If this same man died due to a long-term starvation situation and was considered obese prior to this starvation period, is it likely that his fat stores would be depleted before his death? Explain your thoughts.
