This thioureylene antithyroid drug accumulates in the thyroid gland and inhibits TPO.
Good for chronic medical management, stabilization prior to surgery, radioactive iodine therapy. Noncurative, a control measure only 
This antithyroid drug is contraindicated prior to radioiodine therapy, and is best suited for rapid, short-lived reduction in hormone release?
This drug may be used to symptomatically control tachycardia and hypertension resulting from hyperthyroidism?
Often used in concert with iodine or methimazole 
This drug is considered the safest and most effective therapy for CURING hyperthyroidism?
Uncommonly may cause hypothyroidism, involves hospitalization while isotope is eliminated. 
Generally speaking, drug therapy for endocrine disorders is provided for one of three reasons. Name them?
True or false: dogs, pigs and cats have the same insulin protein?
Fill in the blanks to explain the release of insulin from beta cells in islets of pancreas?
1)Glucose enters through glucose transporter 2)Hexokinase works on it to produce ATP and ADP 3) ____ ______ as ATP-K+ channel closes 4)_____ floods into the cell through a voltage gated channel 5)These ____ ions allow the release of insulin 
True or false: Type 1 diabetes is far more common in dogs and cats than large animals or exotics?
Which of the following would NOT form part of the pathogenesis of IDDM?
a)intracellular glucose deficiency b)extracellular hyperglycemia c)intracellular hyperglycemia d)none of the above 
Name a potential complication of glucose toxicity during IDDM?
True or false: insulin can be frozen for convenient storage?
Regular insulin preparations can be described as ___ or ___ acting?
Used as initial insulin therapy to stabilize patient in emergencies. Examples include humulin and novolin 
This drug (2 possible answers) is an intermediate acting insulin preparation, administered SC, and less likely to stimulate immune responses.
Name one of the two long-acting insulin preparations?
the first named in the answer mostly limited to cats, the second more popular in that species. 
True or false: the duration of action of insulin is generally longer in cats than dogs?
Name something you could monitor to control IDDM and adjust the dosage of insulin?

Acarbose is an _-______ inhibitor which inhibits post-prandial digestion and absorption of starches and disaccharides.
May cause abdominal pain, flatulence and diarrhea. 
What is the most common complication of insulin therapy?
What is the scientific name for the rebound hyperglycemia sometimes seen as a complication of insulin therapy?
Cushing's syndrome is a common name for this ailment?

a)mitotane b)selegiline c)trilostane d)ketoconazole e)none of the above 
This drug causes selective necrosis of zona fasciculata and reticularis, and should be administered with a fatty meal?
More effective in pituitary dependent HAC (achieve a balance of pituitary mediated adrenal hyperplasia and adrenocorticolysis) than in adrenal dependent, since the tumors are often resistant.  
Name a sign of adrenal insufficiency that you would watch for when beginning treatment with mitotane?
This drug works by blocking 3Beta-17-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzyme in the adrenal cortex.
