Physioex 9 0 excersize 4 metabolism and thyroid hormone

Refer to Activity 1: Determining Baseline Metabolic Rates. How did the baseline metabolic rates of the three rats differ? The normal rat's metabolic rate was the lowest.

The thyroidectomized rat's metabolic rate was the highest. The hypophysectomized rat's metabolic rate was the highest. The metabolic rates for the thyroidectomized and hypophysectomized rats were lower than that of the normal rat.

Why did the metabolic rates differ? Refer to Activity 2: Determining the Effect of Thyroxine on Metabolic Rate. How did the thyroxine affect the normal rat's metabolic rate? What was the effect of thyroxine on the thyroidectomized rat's metabolic rate?

  1. Refer to Activity 2. Which organ has been removed in the rat that has been hypophysectomized?
  2. Which patient would be diagnosed with secondary adrenal insufficiency hypopituitarism? The normal rat's metabolic rate was the lowest.
  3. What is the reason for generating a glucose standard curve? What was the effect of thyroxine on the thyroidectomized rat's metabolic rate?
  4. Refer to Activity 4.

What was the effect of thyroxine on the hypophysectomized rat? Refer to Activity 3: What is the effect of TSH on the normal rat's metabolic rate? How did the metabolic rate of the thyroidectomized rat injected with TSH compare to its baseline metabolic rate?

Which organ has been removed in the rat that has been hypophysectomized? Refer to Activity 4: Determining the Effect of Propylthiouracil on Metabolic Rate. What effect did an injection of propylthiouracil have on the metabolic rate of the normal rat? What was the effect of the propylthiouracil on the thyroidectomized rat? Refer to Activity 5: Which of the following had the greatest effect on bone density? Which of the following best describes the effect of estrogen injections into the rat?

Which of the following best describes the effect of the calcitonin injections into the rat? Refer to Activity 6: Obtaining a Glucose Standard Curve.

What is the reason for generating a glucose standard curve? Refer to Activity 7. Which patient s had a fasting plasma glucose level that was borderline? How would you describe the diagnosis for Patient 3? What additional test would you recommend for Patients 2 and 4?

Which hormone is NOT correctly matched with its secreting organ. Which patient would be diagnosed with secondary adrenal insufficiency hypopituitarism?

Which patient would be diagnosed with Cushing's disease secondary hypercortisolism? Answer choices in this exercise appear in a different order each time the page is loaded.
