Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello,

Can you tell me please the glucose physiology in respect to the lymphatic system in short?

Is there glucose inside the lymph? How does glucose enter/leaves the lymph? Are the glucose levels in blood related to the glucose levels in lymph?

thanks!

You asked a lot of questions:
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17952835 answers some aspects of your questions. Lymphatic system is involved in controlling postprandial (after meals) blood level glucose rise.

Suggestion: ask one good question in post, not 4 off the cuff questions - most of them you could ask google, you know. PF is a terrible front end for search engines.

Form your questions one at a time, type them in one at a time. Google will get you an answer. If you do not understand the answer we can help.
