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.
Review articles are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results.
Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
The concept of "review article" is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed.
