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