82 Possible Causes for Increased Glycogen Content

  • Vaginitis

    The high levels of reproductive hormones and an increase in the vaginal environment’s glycogen content create a favorable environment for Candida species, providing an abundant[emedicine.com] They may also raise the sugar content (and the pH) of the vagina and increase the risk of yeast infection.[emedicinehealth.com] The reduction of endogenous estrogen causes thinning of the epithelium and a diminished glycogen content.[emedicine.com]

  • Vaginal Candidiasis

    The high levels of reproductive hormones and an increase in the vaginal environment’s glycogen content create a favorable environment for Candida species, providing an abundant[emedicine.medscape.com] It is believed that higher estrogen levels and higher glycogen content in vaginal secretions during pregnancy increase a woman’s risk of developing VVC. 4 As VVC is so common[cfp.ca] The reduction of endogenous estrogen causes thinning of the epithelium and a diminished glycogen content.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Hypoglycemia

    Experimental studies and in humans have shown that after one or more episodes of hypoglycemia, increased glycogen content in the brain[ 38, 39 ].[doi.org]

  • Insulin Resistance

    It also increased glucose uptake, glycogen content and glycogen synthase (GS) activation in HG-induced insulin resistant HepG2 cells.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Additionally, our study confirms previous work demonstrating that consuming low carbohydrate content in meals after exercise prevents the restoration of muscle glycogen concentration[doi.org] […] the next morning and significantly increased insulin sensitivity the next day.[doi.org]

  • Bacterial Vaginosis

    One mechanism by which combined contraceptives may be protective is that estrogen increases the glycogen-content of epithelial cells, which is a substrate for Lactobacillus[doi.org]

  • Oral Candidiasis

    It is believed that higher estrogen levels and higher glycogen content in vaginal secretions during pregnancy increase a woman’s risk of developing VVC. 4 As VVC is so common[motherisk.org]

  • Hyponatremia

    First, no one is certain how much water is stored along with glycogen in muscle because there is no consistent relationship between increases in muscle glycogen content and[gssiweb.org]

  • Balanitis

    […] due to increased intracellular glycogen, and which may possess slightly weaker structural integrity than typical epidermis.[cirp.org] […] pattern appeared sufficient to superficially ablate mucosal epithelium, which lacks a hydrophobic orthokeratotic stratum corneum, which may have a slightly higher water content[cirp.org]

  • Lafora Disease

    Pathologically, Lafora disease is characterized by increased glycogen content in tissues and presence of malformed glycogen molecules called polyglucosans.[doi.org] In Epm2a / mice, muscle glycogen content was fivefold increased, as in previous studies (Tagliabracci et al, 2008 ).[doi.org] Glycogen content in the brain was significantly decreased in Gys1 heterozygous mice and was absent in Gys1 homozygous-null malin-knockout mice.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Candidiasis

    Increased visibility in PAS is related to the specific site in the candida cell wall, which takes up brilliant magenta color due to rich glycogen content.[aclr.com.es]
