Lipid Metabolism

More Information »When glucose supplies are low, the body is able to draw upon lipids as an alternative energy source. Lipids are generally stored as triglycerides and the first step in lipid metabolism is the conversion to glycerol and fatty acids which then enter the Krebs cycle.
