The adrenals are known for making the hormone adrenaline but also, they make the corticosteroids which affect your metabolism and sexual function. The pancreas is part of the the digestive system and the endocrine system. It makes the hormones insulin and glucagon. These help ensure you have the right amount of sugar in your bloodstream and your cells. If you don 't make any insulin, which is the case for people with type one diabetes, your blood sugar levels can get dangerously high and if the body makes some insulin but not enough, that is type two diabetes.
They are both secreted in response to blood sugar levels, but in opposite ways. Insulin is normally secreted by the beta cells of the pancreas. The stimulus for insulin secretion is the detection of high blood glucose levels. Although there is always a low level of insulin secreted by the pancreas, the amount secreted into the blood increases as the blood glucose levels rises. Similarly, as blood glucose falls, the amount of insulin secreted by the pancreatic islets goes down.
Injecting Insulin 3) Write about the important role of the pituitary gland? Why is it called the master gland? The main role of the pituitary gland is to control and help regulate the activities of other endocrine glands. It is often called the ‘master gland’ because it controls the activities of other endocrine glands such as the ovaries, the testes, adrenal gland and also the thyroid gland. 4) A person may suffer from a number of symptoms when they fail to regulate the production of this hormone.
In respect to sexual desire, increases were reported after administration of 68% of MT-2 compared to 19% for the placebo. Commonly observed side effects following the administration of MT-2 were yawning and nausea; 12.9% of the subjects exhibited severe nausea when administered with a dose of 0.025 m/kg MT-2. The researchers concluded that MT-2 was a potent initiator of penile erection in men who were suffering from erectile dysfunction although they suggested the need for further research to evaluate the melanocortin antagonists and agonists in penile
It becomes difficult to become sexually aroused, and once turned on it also takes him time to obtain an erection and to reach his climax. Basically, performing in bed becomes significantly tough with age. Aging constitutes to lower semen volume, sperm quality and erectile dysfunction. According to various studies, the percentage of potent men drops from 60 percent to around 30 percent between the ages of 40
Diabetic eye disease includes diabetic retinopathy, cataract and glaucoma. What is Diabetic Retinopathy? Diabetic retinopathy is one of the complications of diabetes out of tripathy. Diabetic retinopathy occurs when hyperglycaemia (high blood sugar levels) causes damage to the cells at the back of the eye, known anatomically as, the retina. Diabetic retinopathy is a leading cause of loss of vision.
Introduction Diabetes mellitus is a disease where the sugar levels in one’s blood is above the normal level. This is caused when the body does not produce enough insulin or the body’s cells do not respond correctly to insulin or both. A manifestation of diabetes in the eye is diabetic retinopathy .This affects the retina of the eye. It is when small vessels which are damaged spill into the retina. These blood vessels usually nourish the retina.
The participants presented with diabetes, following which they also developed hypertension. The most common type of aphasia was found to be Global aphasia, the second most common type was Broca’s Aphasia and Receptive type of Aphasia was found to be least common among these individuals. Another trend that was observed was Global aphasia progressing to Broca’s aphasia. Conclusion: The analysis reveals that most of the participants with aphasia secondary to stroke with a history of diabetes were more susceptible to damage in the left MCA territory (along with other diffuse lesions) as well as multiple strokes. The analysis also reveals that the most common type of aphasia occurring in such cases is of the Global type or global type resolving to different aphasias.
The most effective method for demonstrating mutated APC gene in relatives of patients with FAP syndrome is genetic testing.15 CASE REPORT History A 64-year-old previously apparently healthy male presented with fresh painless bleeding per rectum which was mixed with stools and intermittent in nature. It was associated with altered bowel habits characterized by increased frequency with a sense of incomplete evacuation, loss of appetite and loss of weight for the last 6 months. He did not have abdominal pain, vomiting or melena. The patient had hypertension and the past surgical history was unremarkable. His family history revealed that his brother had a similar disease and had undergone a bowel surgery in his fifties.
