  1. Hormones raise blood glucose level?
    Hyperglycemic
  2. Hormones that lower blood glucose level?
    Hypoglycemic
  3. 95% of dietary fat is in a form of?
    Triglycerides
  4. ______ are either broken down to fatty acids or stored as fat?
    Triglycerides
  5. ______ is made of _____- ______ is made from _____ and is storage form of ______?
    • Protein
    • Amino acids
    • Glycogen
    • Glucose
    • Glucose
  6. Conversion of fats, amino acids and other non carbohydrates to glucose?
    Gluconeogenesis
  7. Hydrolysis of glycogen to glucose?
    Glycogenolysis
  8. Breaking down of components such as fat or protein?
    Catabolism
  9. Increases blood glucose- Catabolizes fat and releases fatty acids glycerol into the blood- This makes it unnecessary for cells to consume their protein so growth hormone is protein sparing- Increasing glucose by Gluconeogenesis- Growth makes more glucose available for glycogen synthesis and it is Glucose Sparing?
    Growth Hormone
  10. Increased blood glucose- These hormones inhibit insulin secretions, stimulate glycogenolysis and stimulate gluconeogenesis?
    Epinephrine & Norepinephrine
  11. Increases blood sugar- Stimulates fat and protein catabolism- Stimulate gluconeogenesis- Releases fatty acids and glucose into the blood?
    Cortisol and other Corticosteroids
  12. Increases blood sugar- Stimulates fat and catabolism and the release of fatty acids- Stimulates gluconeogenesis- releases glucose into blood- Promotes cellular absorption of amino acids?
    Glucogen
  13. Decreases blood sugar- Stimulates cells to absorb glucose and amino acids and therefore lowers blood glucose- Promotes synthesis of fat, glycogen and protein?
    Insulin
