==Definition==
+
'''Glucose''' is a [[monosaccharide]] that is very common in nature. It is one of the most important [[carbohydrate]]s.
+
 
+
==Structure==
+
Glucose is a hexavalent polyol whose [[hydroxyl-group]] is oxidized to its C<sub>1</sub> atom in form of an aldehyde. The molecular scaffolding of glucose contains 6 [[carbon]] [[atom]]s, which is therefore characterized as [[aldohexose]].
+
 
+
==Physiological function==
+
The cell uses glucose as a major source of energy and as a metabolic intermediate. The level of plsama glucose is regulated by a [[feedback control]] system containing the [[peptide hormone]]s [[insulin]] and [[glucagon]].
+
 
+
==Pathophysiology==
+
Important [[disorder]]s of glucose metabolism are:
+
*[[Hyperglycemia|Hyperglycemic]] diseaes:
+
** [[Diabetes mellitus]]
+
**[[Glucagonoma]]
+
*[[Hypoglycemia|Hypoglcycemic]] diseases:
+
** [[Insulinoma]]
+
** [[Gycogenosis|Glycogenoses]]
