Hypothalamic and Anterior Pituitary Hormone

7

Hypothalamic and Anterior Pituitary Hormone

8

oxytocin

hormones of the posterior pit.

9

vasopressin

hormones of the posterior pit

10

iodine and potassium iodide

Drugs affecting the thyroid

11

liothyronine

Drugs affecting the thyroid

12

levothyroxine ( synthroid)

Drugs affecting the thyroid

13

methimazole

Drugs affecting the thyroid

14

propylthiouracil

Drugs affecting the thyroid

15

this is produced when stimulated by corticotropin releasing hormone; it binds to receptors in the in the adrenal cortex and stimulates the release of adrenocorticosteroids and adrenal androgens

ACTH

16

which hormone serves as a diagnostic tool for differentiating between primary adrenal insufficiency ( Addison disease) and secondary adrenal insufficiency )?

ACTH

17

this hormone is released in response to growth hormone releasing hormone

growth hormone( somatotropin)

18

these hormones suppress GH and TSH release ; inhibits release of insulin, glucagon , and gastrin ; used clinically to tx certain types of tumors

somatostatin

19

this hormone is essential for the release of follicle stimulating hormone and leutinizing hormone from the pituitary; effective in tx of prostate cancer, endometriosis, and pubertu

GnRH

20

the secretion of this hormone is inhibited by DA; primary function is to stimulate and maintain lactation

prolactin

21

this hormone stimulates uterine contraction and milk ejection and is used clinically to induce labor

oxytocin

22

this hormone aka ADH; increases water permeability and reabsorption in the kidney ; used to tx diabetes insipidus

vasopressin

23

thyroid function is controlled by this hormone

TSH

24

this drug is usually used to Tx hypothyroidism,

levothyroxine

25

this drug can be used to destroy part of the thyroid

radioactive iodine

26

these two drugs inhibit thyroid hormone synthesis

propylthiouracil and methimazole

27

which drug can be used as a pharmacologic dose to inhibit the production of the hormone

iodide
