triggers lactation●Antidiuretic Hormone (ADH) - regulates absorption at the nephronHormone Interactions●Permissiveness○require the binding of 2 or more hormones to alter cell function●Synergism○interaction of 2 or more hormones which enhance the effect of each individual hormone●Antagonism○interaction of 2 or more hormones which interrupt to effect of each individual hormonesMechanism of Control●Humoral Control○endocrine gland detect change in physiological state and responds to correct it (ex. parathyroid gland)■→ sensor, controller, effector (via hormones)●Neural Control○endocrine gland responds to neural stimulation■brain is the controller (ex. adrenal gland)■endocrine gland is the effector ●Hormonal Control○endocrine gland is controlled by hormones released by a different endocrine gland■→ 2nd endocrine gland (controller) releases tropic hormonesTropic Hormones●produced by one endocrine gland to control another endocrine gland○Follicle Stimulating Hormone → ovaries and gonads○Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (ACTH) → adrenal gland affects the hormones it produces○Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) → stimulates Thyroid Hormone○Atrial Natriuretic Peptide (ANP) → responds as result of high blood pressure → effects kidney and adrenal glandInsulin Resistance●excessive insulin leads to decrease in GLUT4 glucose receptors●metabolic acidosis●high triglycerides and free fatty acid levels in blood●supra acide dismutase - mitochondrial antioxidant mechanism●cortisol (stress hormone) decreases GLUT4 receptorsDiabetes Mellitus●Greek “siphon” latin “sweet like honey”●Symptoms○Hunger○Thirst○Frequent and excessive urination○fatigue ●glucose is in the blood and urine → NOT in the tissues → cells yelling to brain “we are hungry!!!”●Chronically High Blood sugar damages the vasculature○thickening of basement membrane and endothelial hyperplasia○reduced blood flow○poor glucose control○reduced diffusion of oxygen●Damage○the nerves○blood vessels (less elastic) ○retina○kidneyHypovolemia●Reduced blood flow, impaired healing → ●low flow, high tissue glucose/O2 , rapid aggressive infection → ●amputation to contain
