About my sessions

Lessons will involve a questionnaire at the beginning regarding the pre-agreed topic that you have requested. Please note that it is best to plan through myTutor so that we can make the most of the time we have. After a quick feedback session, we will go over the topic in a broad sense. Outlining key ideas and key concepts. This is a method that allows to active recall the key concepts and then through spaced repetition, really brush up on the skills. We will then go over and fill in any holes with a paintbrush. Seeing what are the harder concepts to understand and if any more help can be delivered. Then finally, we will fill in the details and go in for the specific details. This is the best way to get to your target grade and I hope I can be of great help to you!!

Outline the role of insulin and glucagon in the regulation of glucose and outline type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

Relevance: Body needs to make glucose for ATP production. (Energy production)Regulation:Both hormones insulin and glucagon are released from the islets of Langerhan in the pancreas.Insulin: Released from the beta cells of the pancreas and act mainly on the liver. Insulin decreases the amount of glucose in the blood. This stimulates glucose uptake by the liver. Glycogenesis occurs in order to convert glucose into glycogen (stored form of glucose) Note cell respiration rates can also be increased.Glucagon: Released from alpha cells of the pancreas and increases the amount of glucose. Gluconeogenesis increases which is the formation of glucose in liver and adipose which occurs due to the conversion of glycogen to glucose by glucagon. Note cell respiration rates can also be decreased.Diabetes:Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder that results from a high blood glucose concentration over a prolonged periodRelevance: Body needs to make glucose for ATP production.
