Glucose is a monosaccharide present in the human body. It participates in the glycometabolism and energy metabolism, and provides energy sources for the physiological activities of various tissues and organs. Therefore, glucose homeostasis is of great significance to health status and is a biomarker that plays an important role in the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases. Creative BioMart Biomarker offers sensitive and fast testing service for glucose, ensuring high detection accuracy, reproducibility and efficiency.
Glucose is a monosaccharide that plays an important role in the organism and is also the main transport form of carbohydrate in the blood. Glucose plays a major role in the glycometabolism. Glycogen is a multimer of glucose, including hepatic glycogen, muscle glycogen, renal glycogen, etc. Glucose is stored primarily in the form of glycogen in the human body. The main source of glucose is food, and may also be derived from the decomposition of other metabolic substances. For example, breaks down to produce glucose during fasting, glycerol, lactic acid and glycogenic amino acids produce glucose through gluconeogenesis during long-term starvation. Glucose in the body is mainly used for energy supply in various tissues, glycogen synthesis in liver and muscle tissue, and conversion into other carbohydrate or non-saccharous substance. Glucose is easily absorbed into the blood and circulates with the blood system. Glucose present in the blood circulation system is generally called blood glucose, and is an important indicator for clinical detection. The blood glucose concentration is generally maintained at a relatively constant level, which is of great significance for ensuring the normal function of various tissues and organs, because glucose is the main energy source of human metabolism and provides energy for many physiological activities. The blood glucose concentration is a direct manifestation of the glucose level in the body, so the homeostasis of blood glucose is related to many physiological activities. The regulation of blood glucose balance in the human body is a complex mechanism involving multiple systems, including the endocrine system and the nervous system. Unbalanced blood glucose homeostasis is associated with a variety of diseases, including diabetes and hypoglycemia. At the same time, due to the importance of glucose to other physiological activities, glucose homeostasis is also related to immune function and nervous system function. Therefore, glucose is a vital biomarker that is of great significance for the diagnosis and prognosis of some diseases.
