What is gluconeogenesis?



Gluconeogenesis is the process of generating glucose in the body from non-carbohydrate food sources. This process takes place primarily in the liver where glucose is made from amino acids (protein), glycerol (found in triglycerides, the primary fat storage molecule) and glucose metabolism intermediaries like lactate and pyruvate.
