Fat Metabolism

Fat metabolism is a biological metabolic process that breaks down ingested fats into fatty acids and glycerol after which into simpler compounds that can be used with the aid of cells of the body. These compounds ultimately gets processed and broken down to produce energy to the body cells.

Fat metabolism is controlled by hormones such as insulin, growth hormone, adrenocorticotropichormone, and glucocorticoids. The rate of fat catabolism is inversely related to the rate of carbohydrate catabolism, and in someconditions, such as diabetes mellitus, the secretion of these hormones increases to counter a decrease in carbohydrate catabolism.
