Hyposecretion Of Glucagon
Secreted by cells in pancrease (pancrelipase) that is normally higher overnight-tells liver to make sugar for brain to use overnight, and low during day when sugars in foods are used by brain. 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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Hypo and Hyper: Both items are not good. Please go online and read the many articles for non-doctors that will help you understand the above. Hypo is too low. Hyper is too high. ...Read more
Stones bones groans: Main symptoms are related to calcium in the urine (kidney stones), abnormal bone metabolism which may lead to pain, osteoporosis, or even fractures, memory disturbances or mood swings. There are data suggesting that untreated hyperparathyroidism may be linked to excess cardiac mortality. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Many symptoms: Parathyroid hormone is responsible for regulating calcium level in blood. The most common cause of hyperparathyroidism is a growth on your parathyroid gland causing overproduction of this hormone. If high, it will raise calcium level in your blood causing osteoporosis, kidney stones, kidney problems, bone pain, constipation, abdominal pain, psychological problems... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Please explain what do we mean by basic secretion of insulin and by the postprandial peak on the secretion of insulin?
Basal, not "basic": Hi. The body needs insulin when you're fasting; this is referred to as "basal insulin"; it provides a background anti-catabolic effect. The meal burst of insulin secretion is to handle the sudden influx of dietary nutrients (NOT just carbohydrates) into the system, and to promote their uptake and storage in several tissues (liver, muscle, and adipose). Different functions of insulin. ...Read more
Production of antidiuretic (adh), thyroxine and t3, (liothyronine) parathyroid (pth), hormones of the adrenal cortex and the pancreas, can you tell me about this?
Complex: Please ask a specific question. This is way too complex and vague to answer. If you want to know about all these hormones, consider an Endocrinology fellowship at a major teaching hospital. Of course, before that, you will need a BS, an MD, and a 3 yr Internal Medicine residency. ...Read more
A deficiency in the release of vasopressin (antidiuretic hormone) by the posterior pituitary gland. Why?
Possibly infarction: Possibly a tumor or something else. Lack of blood supply to the pituitary gland or a pituitary tumor may change the secretions of adh (vasopressin). However, there are other causes also, such as pregnancy that can cause this area to be infarcted (loss of blood supply). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Normal: Hi. Yes, that's the normal endocrine feedback loop to prevent the pituitary from secreting too much ACTH. What do you mean, "what to do"? I believe you WANT normal function. You haven't indicated any problem. Here's to your healthy, normal hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis! ...Read more
