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.
