• hypoglycemia
  • If possible, individuals who suspect they might have HFI, should avoid testing via fructose challenge as the results are non-conclusive for individuals with HFI and even if the diagnostic administration fructose is properly controlled, profound hypoglycemia and its sequelae can threaten the patient's well-being.

  • glucose
  • Fructose is replaced in the diet by glucose, maltose or other sugars. (wikipedia.org)
  • Metabolism is usually divided into two categories: catabolism, the breaking down of organic matter for example, the breaking down of glucose to pyruvate, by cellular respiration, and anabolism, the building up of components of cells such as proteins and nucleic acids. (wikipedia.org)
  • Amino acids also contribute to cellular energy metabolism by providing a carbon source for entry into the citric acid cycle (tricarboxylic acid cycle), especially when a primary source of energy, such as glucose, is scarce, or when cells undergo metabolic stress. (wikipedia.org)
  • Glycolysis (from glycose , an older term [ 1 ] for glucose + -lysis degradation) is the metabolic pathway that converts glucose C 6 H 12 O 6 , into pyruvate , CH 3 COCOO − + H + . The free energy released in this process is used to form the high-energy compounds ATP ( adenosine triphosphate ) and NADH ( reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide ). (omicsgroup.org)
  • For simple fermentations , the metabolism of one molecule of glucose to two molecules of pyruvate has a net yield of two molecules of ATP. (omicsgroup.org)
  • liver
  • for example, experiments can show that urea , the chief nitrogen-containing end product of protein metabolism in mammals , is formed exclusively in the liver . (britannica.com)
  • carbohydrates
  • The three main purposes of metabolism are the conversion of food/fuel to energy to run cellular processes, the conversion of food/fuel to building blocks for proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, and some carbohydrates, and the elimination of nitrogenous wastes. (wikipedia.org)
