Glucose is one of the most easily assimilated sugars. It is well absorbed into the blood, and its excess enters the liver and muscles, where it turns into glycogen. In the body, it breaks down with the formation of energy, which provides heat, the work of muscles and other tissues. Glucose also stimulates the synthesis of hormones and enzymes in animals, increases the body’s defenses. With intravenous administration of a hypertonic glucose solution, the osmotic pressure of the blood rises, fluid flow from tissues to the blood increases, metabolic processes increase, detoxification function of the liver improves, contractile activity of the heart muscle intensifies, blood vessels expand, diuresis increases.
Toxic infections, infectious diseases, various intoxications (drug poisoning, hydrocyanic acid and its salts, carbon monoxide, aniline, arsenic hydrogen and other substances), liver diseases (hepatitis, cirrhosis, dystrophy and liver atrophy), cardiac decompensation, pulmonary edema, hemorrhagic diathesis and many other pathological conditions. In ruminants, it is prescribed for gastrointestinal diseases with the effects of intoxication, hypotension, atony of the stomach, as well as for acetonemia, postpartum hemoglobinuria, ketonuria and toxemia. Glucose solutions are prescribed to weak and depleted animals as an energy and dietary remedy.
Livestock products after glucose solution are used can be used without any restrictions.
40% glucose solution – hypertonic.
