    high dose of insulin at bedtime induces hypoglycemia that induces increased glucagon and cortisol production that then induces hyperglycemia in a.m. ; tx by reducing dose of long-acting insulin at bedtime
  11. where does 80% of insulin mediated glucose uptake take place

  14. body shape associated with T2DM
    apple-shape because abd fat is associated with insulin resistance
  15. what dz is often associated with T2DM because insulin resistance is associated with decreased renal uric acid clearance?

  17. administration of exenatide (Byetta) IR and ER
    IR at SC mealtimes ; ER SC once weekly
  18. how do GLP-1 agonists like Byetta and Victoza work?
    incretin mimetics they increase insulin secretion and inhibit glucagon
  19. What non-insulin DM drugs are administered SC?
    the GLP-1 agonists like exenatide (Byetta) and liragluride (Victoza)

    inhibit enzyme that metabolizes incretin, so they are called incretin mimetics.  Makes incretin available longer.  This increases beta cell prod of insulin and decreases glucagon

    increase insulin sensitivity

    like sulfonylureas and also oral but onset is quick and can be used for mealtime glycemic control
  27. drugs that can increase metabolism of levothyroxine
    rifampin ; anticonvulsants

  30. is there goiter in Hashimoto's?
    yes but may regress over time
  31. hypothyroidism can be caused by what meds

  36. pancreatitis associated with what diseases
    gallstones, etoh abuse,  and hypertriglyceridemia
  37. How to take Orlistat
    within 1 hr of a meal
  38. How hyperinsulemia contributes to HTN
    increases renal Na reabsorption and promotes peripheral vasoconstriction
