Type II Diabetes

APBIO-UGEXE2

Your mom went to the doctor with your aunt, who was diagnosed with Type II diabetes. Your mom told you that your aunt will have to limit the amount of complex carbohydrates that she eats.

What are carbohydrates and what makes some of them complex?

A

Carbohydrates are complex molecules that are made up of sugar monomers. These monomers are bonded together by dehydration reactions, (the removal of water molecules).

B

Carbohydrates are complex molecules that are made up of amino acid monomers. These monomers are bonded together by dehydration reactions, (the removal of water molecules).

C

Carbohydrates are complex molecules that are made up of sugar monomers. These monomers are bonded together by hydration reactions, (the addition of water molecules).

D

Carbohydrates are complex molecules made up of sugar polymers that are bonded together by dehydration reactions (the removal of water molecules).
