Which of the following are effects of glucocorticoids upon carbohydrate metabolism?
(Check all that apply)
A. Decreased gluconeogenesis in liver B. Increased glucose uptake by skeletal muscle C. Increased glycogen synthesis in liver D. Decreased glucose uptake by adipose tissue E. Increased glucose utilization in peripheral tissues
Increased glycogen synthesis in liver-2. decreased glucose uptake by adipose tissue-answer: cd(katzung, pp 640, brunton, pp 1597)effects of glucocorticoids on intermediary metabolism can be viewed as protecting glucosedependent tissue (brain and heart) from starvation. to this end they increase glycogen synthesisand storage in liver and diminish glucose utilization in the periphery, therefore decreasingglucose uptake by adipose tissue. the net results of all these effect is to increase blood glucoselevels.a, b, e) actually glucocorticoids have actions opposite to those listed .
