Coniviptan blocks what?T
3 strategies for osteoporosis?
Primary cause of parathyrodism?
- low calcium--> high calcium
What is the diff in phosphoate homeostasis with PTH and vit D?
- PTH--increases po4 exrection in kidney
- Vit D--increase po4 absorption in intestine
- increases Ca and Po4 resorption from bone
- increases Ca absorptionin kidney
- increases PO3 excretion in kidney
- activates vit D--which absorbs ca and po4 in intestine
ADH and Oxytocin production
Tx for pit adenoma?
- bromocriptine to stop prolactin
- octeotride---somatostatin analog to stop GH
In case of hypo. ant. pit what HR decreases first and which one should be treated first?
- GnRH goes down first--sexual dysfunction
- ACTH def. must be treated first with cortisol to maintain sugar and BP
Tx for lithium induced DI?
Somatostatin has 3 inhibitory roles what are they?
What secretes it?
- Hypothalamus--inhibit GH and TSH
- D cells of pancreas-stop insulin, glucagon, enzymes
- GI mucosa--gastrin, pepsinogen
ADh vasoconstriction via what receptor?
Measurment of GH can be done by looking at what?
somatomedin c /IGF-1
In normal PTs what effect does glucose have on GH?
- low glucose--high GH
- high glucose--low GH
GH receptor for acromegaly?
Cortisol production inhibitor used to diagnose ACTH deficiency?
Somatostatin analog for tx of carcinoid, gastrinoma, glucogonoma, acromegaly?
5 releasing HR from Hypothalamus?
How do diagnose GH deficiency with insulin?
give insuling-->low sugar--> GH levels should rise
3 Causes for hypo. ant. pit?
- post partum hemorrhage
- inflammation--encephalitis, sarcoidosis
- pit. apoplexy--hemorrhagic infarct due to pit. adenoma
V1 acts thru what receptor?
Gq via ip3 and DAG
atrophy of ant. pit due to decreased perfusion during labor
Tx for Hyperparathyrodism?
- Bisphosphoates--drugs ending in DRONATE
bisphosphonate for Pagets
Recombinant PTH for Osteoporosisn?
Tx for Hypercalcemia?
- IV saline
what are the levels of Ca and PO4 in pseudoparathyrodism?
what causes it?
- ca and po4 are low
- renal failure and low vit d cause it
- all due to defective pTH receptors
Hypcalcemia does what do the QT interval?
prolongs it--torsaides the point? yup
T3 or T4 is predominatly active?
What 2 conditions elevate TBG and total t4 but free t4 is normal?
What 3 conditions decreaese TBG and total t4 but free T4 is still normal?
- pregnancy and tamoxifen--due to estrogen
- nephrotic syndrome and androgens
What index do we look at to see normal thyroid levels?
what do u measure to see thyroid levels?
Highly sensitive TSH is done when?
What do you treat? Hyperthyrodism, or hypothyrodism?
when do u do radioactive uptake?

- Radioactiv Uptake in Hyperthyrodism
RAIU is low/
someone is ingesting thyroid hormone
what one is used in pregnancy?
methimazole or propylthiouracil?
Tx for hyperthyrodism?
- block oxidation of iodine
- block coupling of iodine to tyrosine
High dose of propylthiouracil does what?
prevent conversion of T4 to T3
