Feces is stored, formed and transported in: ~ the large intestine
What is still helping digest in Large int. ? ~ Cellulose
What 2 vitimins are found in large intestine? ~ Bs, and K
How is digestive system sensitive to malnutrition? ~ Si shrinks, w/o fiber (which retains h20) si has insufficient bulk for muscles to push against.
Storage from glucose called ? is stored in ? and ? ~ glycogen, liver and muscle cells
What organ processes some of the waste that cells generate? ~ liver (sends to digestive tract)
What organ filter blood creating urine? ~ kidneys
Backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus is called: ~ heartburn
How can you help avoid heartburn? ~ small meals, avoid spices, lose weight, don't lay down after eating
What is the difference between antacids (tums) and acid blockers (pepcid ac)? ~ antacids neutralize acids in stomach / Acid blockers stop acid production
Where are three common areas for ulcers? ~ esophagus, stomach, upper SI
What are 3 things that can cause an ulcer? ~ bacteria, anti-imflamatory drugs, excess acid production
