  • 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. (wikipedia.org)
  • sucrose
  • Affected individuals are asymptomatic and healthy, provided they do not ingest foods containing fructose or any of its common precursors, sucrose and sorbitol. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the past, infants often became symptomatic when they were introduced to formulas that were sweetened with fructose or sucrose. (wikipedia.org)
  • Once identified, parents of infants who carry mutant aldolase B alleles leading to HFI, or older individuals who have clinical histories compatible with HFI can be identified and counselled with regard to preventive therapy: dietary exclusion of foods containing fructose, sucrose, or sorbitol.

  • 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)
  • molecules
  • As these molecules are vital for life, metabolism focuses on making these molecules, in the construction of cells and tissues, or breaking them down and using them as a source of energy, in the digestion and use of food. (wikidoc.org)
  • cancer
  • Glycolytic metabolism and the associated metabolic re-programming not only support rapid growth, although at the expense of other cells, but they also make the cancer cell less dependent on oxygen availability while generating an acidic micro-environment that enhances malignancy. (isom.ca)
  • cells
  • Metabolism (from Greek: μεταβολή metabolē, "change") is the set of life-sustaining chemical transformations within the cells of organisms. (wikipedia.org)
