Triglycerides VS Glucose

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I think triglycerides and glucose are very like each other when they are described. I wonder what's the big difference? Glucose is taking up by cells if energy is needed and so is triglycerides, so what differ?

A) Structurally and chemically very different.

B) Different pathways in uptake

C) Different pathways in metabolization (though interconversion is possible via central metabolitic pathways)

D) Different physiological effects (e.g. of high/low levels).
