Digestion and absorption of carbohydrates and blood glucose levels

the carbohydrate-rich foods you consume start out with a variety of complex and simple carbohydrates, but ultimately they must be digested into monosaccharides in order to be absorbed into the bloodstream. blood glucose levels are regulated closely by insulin and glucagon (and other hormones) in order to ensure a steady supply of glucose to the brain and other tissues.

select all of the sentences below that correctly describe a step in the processes of digestion, absorption, and/or blood glucose regulation.

select all that apply.

select all that apply.

1-after a meal, blood glucose levels rise, and the pancreas secretes glucagon, which stimulates glycogenolysis.
2-after a meal, blood glucose levels rise, and the pancreas secretes insulin, which aids in glucose uptake into cells and stimulates glycogenesis.
3-most fiber is broken down by bacteria in the small intestine, and most of the smaller chains are absorbed through the brush border into the bloodstream.
4-glucose, fructose, and galactose are absorbed by the cells of the small intestine and then enter the bloodstream.
5-the brush border of the small intestine produces enzymes that digest disaccharides into glucose, fructose, and galactose.


i'm gonna put a couple so you can chose from


if you know the fur color of the offspring mice, you can use the ratios to identify the genotypes of the parents.

if either parent mouse passes a dominant allele, the offspring will have black fur.

if the parental mice has two different fur color (i.e white and black) , the color of the offspring's fur would be either black, white, or the combination of both (grey)

hope this : )

d i think its   answer d

2,3,4 and 5 apply


Insulin is produced by the pancreas to enhance glucose uptake into cells.

Fiber are broken down by bacteria in the gastrointestinal system

Glucose is absorbed in the intestines

Some part of carbohydrates are metabolised in the small intestines

Do you know the answer?
