Abstract

Glucose, the primary fuel for all body cells, is derived primarily from carbohydrates. If needed, glucose can also be metabolized from protein. After a meal, some of the glucose, which is not used immediately for fuel, travels to the liver and skeletal muscles, where it is converted to glycogen through the process of glycogenesis [1].
