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