FunctionAnswer
Pancreatic hormone that increases glycogen breakdown
Amino acid required for iodination during Thyroid Hormone synthesis
Hormone that is necessary for growth and neurological development in adolescents
Type of diabetes in which victims can be given insulin to prevent hyperglycemia
Gland that synthesizes and releases calcitonin
Pancreatic hormone that is released in response to high blood glucose.
Adrenal cortex hormones that increase blood glucose via gluconeogenesis, decrease protein synthesis, and reduce the body's immunological response.
FunctionAnswer
Disorder caused by iodine deficiency or thyroid inflammation
Insulin-dependent form of diabetes
Pancreatic hormone that is released in response to CCK, gastrin, and low blood glucose.
Pancreatic hormone that increases gluconeogenesis.
Adrenal medulla hormones that increase blood glucose, heart rate, cardiac output, vasodilation to muscles, pupil dilation, and bronchodilation. Also slow down digestion.
Hormone that inhibits osteoclast activity
Thyroid deficiency in children that causes mental retardation and delays in development.
FunctionAnswer
Hormone released by the alpha cells of the pancreas.
Pancreatic hormone that decreases blood glucose
Pancreatic hormone that increases protein/fat degradation
Cortisol is an example of this hormone class
Hormone that promotes osteoclast activity
Type of diabetes caused by autoimmune destruction of beta cells resulting in no more insulin production
Pancreatic hormone that increases glycogen synthesis
FunctionAnswer
Type of diabetes in which there is a loss of response to insulin
Insulin-independent form of diabetes
Disorder marked by very low blood glucose levels due to over production of insulin
Where aldosterone is synthesized and released
Pancreatic hormone that increases fatty acid synthesis
Where epinephrine and norepinephrine are synthesized and released
Hormone released by the beta cells of the pancreas.
FunctionAnswer
Pancreatic hormone that increases the uptake of amino acids
Disorder caused by tumors or overstimulation of thyroid gland
Where glucorticoids are synthesized and released
Pancreatic hormone released in response to high glucose or amino acid levels in the blood
Hormone that decreases blood calcium
Hormone that is released in response to high blood calcium
Pancreatic hormone that suppresses the secretion of glucagon and insulin
FunctionAnswer
Thyroid gland hormone that increases protein/fatty acid synthesis and degradation
Disorder that causes heightened metabolism/respiratory rate/heart rate, and a heat intolerance.
The antagonist hormone to Parathyroid Hormone (PTH)
Type of diabetes caused by genetics and/or high-sugar dieting
Pancreatic hormone that increases blood glucose
Disorder that causes lethargy, low body temperature, and slow metabolism/heart rate/respiratory rate and a cold intolerance.
Hormone released by the gamma cells of the pancreas which is regulated by CCK and GH
