Which disorder do you usually find Thyroid Receptor Antibodies (TRAb)?
Graves ONLY (not in Hashimoto's)
Which SFU requires hepatic metabolism to active metabolite?

Which Incretin Mimetic does not require any renal adjustment?
What is the DOC for thyroid storm?
What is the BBW associated with Propylthiouracil?
Which thioamide is ok to use in breastfeeding?
Propylthiouracil is safe in pregnancy and lactation. Methimazole is secreted in breast milk
When using BBs for hyperthyroidism, which agents should be avoided?
Intrinsic Sympathomimetic Activity (Acebutolol, Pinolol)

How do BBs work in hyperthyroidism?
Blocks T4 --> T3 conversion
When do you use SSKI (Iodine) for Thyroid Storm?
Do not start until 1 hour after antithyroid drugs
What agents are indicated for controlling PPG?
SFUs. Meglitinides. a-Glucosidase Inhibitors. DPP-4 Inhibitors (by MOA of promoting early satiety, increasing insulin secretion, and slowing gastric emptying). Short and Rapid-Acting Insulin
What agents are indicated for controlling FPG?
Biguanides. TZDs. DPP-4 Inhibitors (by MOA of suppressing secretion of glucagon)
What is the criteria for diagnosing DM?
1) A1c > 6.5%. 2) FPG > 126. 3) A 2h plasma glucose > 200 during 75g OGTT. 4) Symptoms of DM + random blood glucose > 200

Fasting < 95. 1h < 140. 2h < 120
