Medical Good glucose

  1. May 12, 2017 #1
    We have a good cholesterol (HDL) and bad cholesterol. It just occurred to me that do we have a similar thing in glucose too. Good glucose after a proper digestion and bad glucose in improper digestion?

    The HDL and LDL molecules are chemically different substances. But there is only one kind of glucose molecule.
