Are you interested in gaining an insight into the carbohydrates digestion and absorption? If yes, here is the sqadia.com V learning medical lecture to serve the basic intention. All the major topics have been covered under this major head viz digestion and absorption of carbohydrates along with the facilitated transport. Furthermore, carbohydrate malabsorption, lactase and sucrase deficiency in conjunction with the disacchariduria and monosaccharides have been explicated.
Digestion of Carbohydrates
The prime focus of this section is on the digestion of carbohydrates. Firstly, an overview of the digestion along with the digestion in the mouth has been considered. Moreover, digestion in the stomach and in duodenum has been brought under discussion. Following this, digestion in the small intestine has been highlighted.
Absorption of Carbohydrates
Initially, rate of absorption of different sugars and their mechanism of absorption has been conversed about. Moving ahead, Wilson and Crane’s hypothesis of active transport alongside the carrier proteins characteristics and glucose transporters have been shed light on. In the end, the cotransport system of glucose absorption and absorption of other sugars have been mentioned in detail.
The chief focus of this section is on the facilitated transport. Initially, facilitated and active transport has been compared. Subsequently, mechanism of facilitated transport together with the factors determining facilitated transport has been quite comprehensively discussed. Conclusively, factors influencing the rate of absorption has been explicated.
In the commencement, defects in digestion and carbohydrates absorption has been highlighted. These include lactase deficiency and its types along with the inherited lactase deficiency. Furthermore, both primary and secondary low lactase activity and sucrase deficiency have been explicated. Moreover, disacchariduria and monosaccharides have been thoroughly explained.
