5 True/False questions
What are synthetic hormones that mimic the hormones action? → agonists
What are direct effects of growth hormone? → lipolytic and glucose sparing, increases lipolysis, causes insulin resistance (diabetogenic)
What inhibits glucagon secretion? → initially only as hypothalamic satiety center is insulin dependent, later anorexia and vomiting following tissue damages a/o acidosis
What is non-neoplastic hyperplasia of thyroid gland? → defects of the thyroid gland (autoimmune, lymphocytic infiltration or idiopathic atrophy)
What initiates protein hormone synthesis? → respective stimulus to an endocrine gland cell
