Flashcards in Shit I dont like Deck (14):
Test for ACTH
- Metyrapone (increase 11-deoxycortisol)
- Clonidine -> stimulate CRH
- Dexamethasone (cortisol analoge -> cause negative-feedback on the pituitary)
Treatment for hyperthyroidism
Beta blockers (for some patients)
Prophylthiouracile (block T4 to T3 conversion and thyroid peroxidase)
Radioactive iodine 131 can block thyroid secretion temporary?
Treatment for hypothyroidism
Insulin can be used for?
Diabetes treatment and stimulation test for ACTH and GH stimulation
Stimulation test for cortisol
Insulin via ACTH increase?
Treatment for Addison's
Treatment for SIADH and DI
Desmopressin stimulate ADH receptors and can be used to treat central DI
Furosemide can be used for nephrogenic one?
Demeclocycline block ADH receptor function. Good for SIADH
What blocks cortisol synthesis and what can it be used for?
Metyrapon block cortisol formation -> cause an increase in ACTHH -> 11-deoxycortisol
What can be used for prolactin testing?
Bromocriptine -> dopamine agonist -> block PRL
Metoclopramide -> stimulate PRL
TRH -> stimulate PRL
GH stimulation and inhibition
Glucose and somatostatin (octreotide)
What is the gold standard for testing of aldosterone? which drug can minic aldosterone and inhibit its formation (supression test)?
Adrenal vein sampling
Check aldosterone and renin levels
FSH and LH testing
Clomiphene -> FSH and LH
TSH stimulation test
TRH (also increase PRL)
