The glucose metabolism is altered in the people with diabetes. In type 2 diabetes, the effectiveness of insulin is reduced and in type 1 diabetes, insulin levels in the body are low as the pancreatic beta cells stop producing insulin. Metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes, impairs the bodyâs ability to use glucose. As a result blood sugars levels increases, weight gain is more expected and the resistance to insulin becomes greater. Glucose production is increased in people with type 2 diabetes before and after food intake. Excessive glucose production occurs due to delayed insulin secretion and lack of suppression of glucagon release. Regulation of hepatic glucose metabolism in type 2 diabetes will require normalization of insulin and glucagon secretion as well as hepatic insulin action. In type 1 diabetes, the patients are administered with regular insulin for the glucose metabolism.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
