6.3: Carbohydrate Metabolism

There are many metabolic pathways/cycles/processes/reactions that are involved in the synthesis or degradation of carbohydrates and compounds formed from them. Please note that most of these pathways aren't specific to carbohydrates only. Gluconeogenesis will be covered in the protein section, because amino acids are a common substrate used for synthesizing glucose.
