Sugar is an organic compound whose chemical essence is polyaldehydes or polyhydroxy ketones and their derivatives. Sugar metabolism refers to a series of complex chemical reactions of glucose and glycogen in the body. The main source of sugar in the body is from food, which is digested by the human body and absorbed into monosaccharides, then transported to various tissues and cells through blood for synthesis and catabolism. The main metabolic pathways of glucose in the body are anaerobic glycolysis of glucose, aerobic oxidation, pentose phosphate pathway, uronic acid pathway, polyol pathway, glycogen synthesis, and glycogen decomposition, gluconeogenesis, and another hexose metabolism.
