FA Connect: Nutrition & Metabolism in FA - Tracing nutrients from consumption to energy production

Jul 13th, 2021, 10:00 AM

 

ABOUT THE TALK

This discussion will provide a basic overview of nutrition and how our bodies use nutrients to fuel our metabolism and provide energy to make organ systems. We will explore how we can tag and trace nutrients from consumption to utilization to better understand what our bodies need to grow and develop properly. We will examine preliminary study results to show how we can trace glucose after it is taken in, broken down, and distributed throughout the body.

*This session is open to adults with FA, primary caregivers and parents of children/adults with FA.
