Energy reserve for: • Starvation • Infection • Pregnancy • Other conditions of energetic stress During energetic stress: fat mobilized and converted into saturated fat for the body to use Immune response is energetically expensive Inactive immune system consumes about 23% of overall metabolism! When activated by infection, increases even further • Sepsis:>50% • When you’re sick you eat more carbs and less fat and protein • Energy comes from stored adipose tissue and glucose stored in liver Lymph nodes are important in the immune system • Found all over the body • Often concentrated in regions where pathogens are likely to be encountered • Embedded in adipose tissue o Less likely to compete for energy with other tissues • Focused in digestive tract (diseases present near there) • Found near gentials etc. o Wherever found—embedded i
