Always inappropriately elevated in patients with diabetes. Some medications for diabetes can reduce glucagon to improve blood sugar. Sometimes used asto raise blood sugar in someone unconsious due to ...Read more

What are the effects of hypersecretion and hyposecretion of vasopressin?

What are the effects of hypersecretion and hyposecretion of vasopressin?

Vasopressin,: also known as antidiuretic hormone/ADH, is a "pituitary" hormone which acts to retain water and constrict blood vessels. It increases water reabsorption in the kidney's collecting ducts. Decreased release due to alcohol intoxication or tumor leads to increased blood sodium/excessive urination/thirst. Excess vasopressin leads to low sodium. A number of problems cause inappropriate ADH-tumors, drugs ...Read more

What hormone inhibits the secretion of adh (vasopressin)? And what situations override the release of this inhibiting hormone?

What hormone inhibits the secretion of adh (vasopressin)? And what situations override the release of this inhibiting hormone?

ADH (vasopressin) secretion: ADH (vasopressin) is mostly controlled by plasma osmolality and plasma volume. Diabetes insipidus occurs when ADH (vasopressin) is not secreted (head trauma, pituitary tumor) or when the kidney does not respond to it (nephrogenic di). Ethanol inhibits adh, (vasopressin) as does atrial naturetic protein, but these are lesser influences than osmolality and volume. ...Read more

Explain the role of secretin in regulating bile and pancreatic juices?

Explain the role of  secretin in regulating bile and pancreatic juices?

Important hormone: Secretin is important in digestion. When stomach acid flows into the duodenum (small intestine) secretin is released. The secretin stimulates the pancreas to release bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) which helps digest food. It also enhances the function of cck which is important in gallbladder function. Secretin is stopped from working when the ph of the stomach is blocked with certain medications. ...Read more

Does the pancreas of a person suffering from diabetes mellitus 1 produce glucagon?

Does the pancreas of a person suffering from diabetes mellitus 1 produce glucagon?

Often no: Patient with type 1 dm have destruction of islet cells and pancreatic tissue which not only produces Insulin but also glucagon that is why a lot of type 1 diabetics or those who become diabetic due to pancreatic disease/tumor/surgery have brittle dm where bs go very high then drop very low suddenly, there is no balance and they lack both Insulin and glucagon. ...Read more
