Not sure what a pathway is?
It may help to think of a pathway as a way your body processes sugar. Insulin is the most well known pathway.
Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that helps manage the amount of sugar in your blood.
There are more pathways in your body, including other hormones, like insulin, organs and proteins that work together to manage blood sugar levels.
Some of the other ways your body processes sugar
SGLT1 absorbs sugar
SGLT1 is a protein that works in your gut, absorbs sugar from your meal and takes it to your bloodstream.
GLP-1 lowers blood sugar
GLP-1 is a hormone that affects organs like the pancreas, stomach, brain, liver and muscle to lower blood sugar.
It’s important to know the pathways and how they can affect your blood sugar levels.
Isn't it time?
With all the pathways that go beyond insulin alone and including hormones, proteins, and organs in your body to help process blood sugar, isn’t it time to rally for type 1 diabetes?I WANT TO RALLY » SAUS.SOTA.18.07.3946d
