After carbohydrate ingestion, glucose is rapidly oxidized or stored in muscles and liver. There is a constant alternance between glucose storage as glycogen after meals and glycogen mobilization in the postabsorptive state when plasma glucose has returned to the basal state. Impairment of this alternance, in particular when glycogen stores… CONTINUE READING
