Energy Metabolism – Part 3: Regulation of Glycolysis

Energy Metabolism – Part 3: Regulation of Glycolysis

Energy metabolism – Part 3: How is glycolysis regulated? In the last episode, we introduced the three key enzymes of glycolysis. These are hexokinase, phosphofructokinase 1, and pyruvate kinase. So, why are they key enzymes? Well, it’s because they’re important regulatory enzymes in glycolysis, and, can, therefore, adapt the glycolytic process to meet the physiological

A Grandpa Set His Clock Forward 1 Hour. This Is How His Heart Shutdown.

KC is a 79 year old man, presenting to the emergency room with chest pain radiating to his left jaw. His wife Jane, tells the admitting nurse that earlier in the morning, he had become short of breath. He felt nauseous, and light headed, before collapsing to the floor. You see, KC was observing a

Steps of Glycolysis Reactions Explained – Animation – SUPER EASY

Biological organisms require energy to survive. Glycolysis is one of the pathways cells use to transform sugars like glucose into biochemical energy in the form of ATP. In the cytosol of the cell, glycolysis converts glucose into pyruvate, through a series of 10 enzymatic reactions. This process produces ATP, along with other products, such as

What does it mean when histamine intolerance and blood sugar dysregulation occur together?

What does it mean when histamine intolerance and blood sugar dysregulation occur together?

Jennifer Dunlap says, “A client with a lifetime history of plaque psoriasis has dysregulated blood sugar and apparent histamine intolerance after six months of Humira, a medication used for autoimmune diseases such as psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis. While he probably had some degree of histamine intolerance prior to this medication, his blood sugar was quite

School Won’t Let Diabetic Child Inject Insulin?

– [Travis] I am incredibly troubled by this story, mainly because I am not a big believer in at-home, it’s like you’re in the lab mixing and matching and adding water. – [Andrew] No and you could- to your insulin and that to me is where the school has an incredible argument here. – [Andrew]

Transcriber: Leonardo Silva Reviewer: Tatjana Jevdjic I’m here to recruit you. I’m here to get you to join me in creating a healthier world. But I’m also here to convince you that we can’t do that within the traditional healthcare paradigm. We have to think in a new way. We need to come together to

Energy Metabolism – Part 2: Glycolysis reactions

Energy Metabolism – Part 2: Glycolysis reactions

To obtain energy, the body uses food or it’s own reserves. The main sources of energy are sugars and fats. This Chalk Talk episode looks at how the breakdown of sugar yields energy in the form of ATP. The process responsible is glycolysis. Its name already pretty much gives it away: In this metabolic process,

A personal health coach for those living with chronic diseases | Priscilla Pemu

When I first became a doctor in Benin City, Nigeria, some 30-odd years ago, I was drawn to help people live full lives. But often, I found myself feeling impotent. Here I was, a brand-new doctor with all these skills, but I couldn’t cure my patients who had chronic diseases — illnesses like heart disease,

Energy Metabolism – Part 1: Body’s Sources of Energy

Energy Metabolism – Part 1: Body’s Sources of Energy

Do you remember Dieter? Well, his physician told him that he should exercise more. So, that’s why Dieter’s going for a run today. The source of energy his muscles initially use is ATP. ATP, or adenosine triphosphate, is a molecule containing high energy phosphate-oxygen bonds. When a phosphate group cleaves off from the ATP molecule,
