Replace or supplement T3Myxedema coma
Replace or supplement T4Hypothyroidism
Decreased hepatic glucose production, potentiation of insulin action in peripheral tissues by increasing cell surface insulin receptors, increasing Glut4 glucose transporters and iType 2 diabetes
Cyp 17,20 lyase inhibitor, inhibit production of testosteroneProstate cancer
V1A,V2 receptor antagonistHyponatremia
Androgen receptor antagonistProstate cancer
Estrogen receptor partial agonist in brainInfertility
DPP-IV inhibitor; slows breakdown of GLP-1 and GIPType 2 diabetes
Supplement oxytocinInitiation or improvement of uterine contractions in labor or incomplete abortion, control of postpartum bleeding
Progesterone receptor agonistsContraception, emergency contraception, endometriosis, dysfunctional uterine bleeding, hormone-refractory breast cancer, HRT (without hysterectomy)
5-α reductase inhibitors, inhibit production of dihydrotestosteroneBPH, male pattern baldness
Progesterone receptor antagonistsPregnancy termination
Alternate substrate for thyroperoxidase, inhibition of thyroxin synthesis, inhibition of coupling to form thyroglobulin, inhibition of T4®T3Hyperthyroidism (especially during pregnancy and breast feeding)
GLP-1 agonist; potentiation of insulin secretion, inhibition of glucagon secretionType 2 diabetes
Somatostatin receptor agonists, intended to reduce the secretion of growth hormone in response to any stimulusAcromegaly, gigantism
D2 receptor agonist/weak D1 receptor antagonist, intended to reduce the secretion of growth hormone or prolactinAcromegaly, gigantism, hyperprolactinemia
MechanismDrugDisease or Use
Replace or supplement insulinType 1 and type 2 diabetes
V2 receptor agonist, replace or supplement vasopressionDiabetes insipidus, nocturnal enuresis
Alternate substrate for thyroperoxidase, inhibition of thyroxin synthesis, inhibition of coupling to form thyroglobulinHyperthyroidism (except during pregnancy and breast feeding)
Analogue of amylin (a small peptide normally released from beta cells along with insulin); slows gastric emptying, promotes satiety, inhibits glucagon secretionType 1 and type 2 diabetes
Inhibition of thyroid hormone synthesis and release,Hyperthyroidism preparative to thyroidectomy, reduction of thyroid gland vascularity, reduction of thyroid cell proliferation
Estrogen receptor agonistsContraception, infertility, prostate cancer, HRT
Long-acting KATP channel blocker, increases insulin secretionType 2 diabetes
V2 receptor antagonistHyponatremia
Short-acting KATP channel blockers, increase insulin secretionType 2 diabetes
Androgen receptor agonistsInfertility, hypogonadism, muscle wasting/atrophy, erythropoiesis, HRT (men), endometriosis
Replace or supplement growth hormonePrimary growth hormone deficiency, Turner’s Syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, Chronic growth retarding disease, Idiopathic short stature, Chronic renal insufficiency, AIDS wasting syndrome
Concentration in and destruction of thyroid tissueHyperthyroidism
Activation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPAR), increase in insulin-stimulated rate of glucose utilization, reduced lipolysis and increased fat storage, reduced cType 2 diabetes
