Hypertrophy pg168/867 Increased volume of an organ or tissue due to the enlargement of the individual cells (cell size increases)
Gigantism pg 169 (pituitary) hypersecretion of GH before puberty. TX w/SX
Dwarfism pg 174 (pituitary) Hyposecretion of GH before puberty=growth retardation. TX w/hGH (somatotropin)injections
How will OT assist pat's w/gigantism or dwarfism? pg 175 By providing adaptive equipment & positioning, Patient/family education
What are TROPIC hormones? (Nope, not the islands:) pg 167 Hormones that target/stimulate secretion of other hormones
How do all endocrine diseases occur? pg 168 from an abnormal increase/decrease in the secretion of hormones
What are the 3 reasons that glandular secretions may diverge from normal? pg 168 Atrophy, hypertrophy, or hyperplasia =usually due to an "insult" to the gland (infection, trauma, SX, Inflammation)
What are COMMON abnormal endocrine symptoms? pg 168 1.Growth Abnorms 2.Emot.Disturbs/psych probs,hair,nail changes 4.Edema 5.Hyper/Hypo-tension 6.Arrhythmia 7.+/- urine output 8.Muscle weakness/atrophy 9.Menstrual irregularity/amenorrhea 10.Impotence/libido changes 11.Sterility 12.+/- Energy levels
What are the modalities for DX endocrine disorders? pg 168 Blood tests (RIAs)& Urinalysis. MRI,US,& scans determine type/location of lesions
What is diabetes Insipidus (sip, sip, sip, pee,pee,pee)**symptoms can onset abruptly** pg 175 Disturbance of H2O metabolism=extreme thirst/excessive secretion of diluted urine due to lack of ADH(vasopressin)causing polyuria & polydipsia. May also exhibit signs fatigue & dehydration:dry mucous membranes,LBP, poor skin turgor, dizziness, fatigue
Can thyroid diseases be resolved? pg 176 Yes (through med's & SX)
What usually causes disturbances in the thyroid? pg 176 +/- secretions of T3, T4, & mass lesions
What is one of the 1st signs of thyroid disease pg 177 A goiter (simple)
Goiter (Simple)=(nontoxic) pg 177 any enlargement of the thyroid gland evidenced by a conspicous,swollen mass in the neck (hyperplasia). Typical fem. pat's
What thyroid diseases/symptoms fall into the hyperfunction category? pg 177 Grave's (auto imm), Polydipsia, polyuria,dyspnea,dysphagia,wt.loss, tachycardia, anxiety, ++sweating, heat intolerance, diarrhea, thin hair, exophilalmos (bug eye), CHF, hyperflexia, enlarged thyroid-warm to touch(palpate),nodules,1 solitary toxic nodule
How are goiters usually TX? pg 178 1 drop KI/week(pot.iod) (seafood/vege's)..AVOID turnips,cabbage,broccoli,br.spouts,cauliflower,radishes,soy (goitrogenic foods), lithium medication,SX if nec.
What endocrine organ produces pathology most often? (There's always 1 in the crowd!!)pg 176 Thyroid (T4 & T3 affect the meabolism of all body tissues thru systemic circulation)
In the early stages, might a patient be aware that they have a simple goiter? pg 177 No--asymptomatic

What causes someone to have a diabetic coma? Eat too much, STRESS/infection, skipped meds/insulin dose, Not prev. DX!!
What do we need to be aware of in OT for Hypoglycemics: RAPID ONSET, watch for symptoms! careful of injuries (healing), may be anxious or lethargic,Don't overexercise, educate pat. of diet & meds, give simple sugars if needed
What do we need to be aware of in OT for Hyperglycemics: May be lethargic, doesn't heal well, need lots of fluids, educate diet/meds NO SWEETS!
Why would it be important to know if your pat. was using Glucophage to TX their type 2 diabetes? 1. side effect=lactic acidosis: weakness, fatigue, unusual muscle/ab pain, dyspnea, dizziness, light headed, bradycardia or arrhythmias, 2. should not be taken by ppl w/HX of renal disease, CHF, Liver disease, alcoholism. Must stop before taking contrast
What are some names of Glucophage meds? Avandia-being removed from mkt, Actos
What is Metabolic Syndrome: "syndrome x" Collection of signs/conditions that existing together may increase person's potential for Type 2 diabetes & CV disease
What are the 5 main components of Syndrome X (pre-diabetic) 1. Central obesity F=35"+/M=40"+ 'visceral fat' 2.++BP over 130/85 M/F 3.Abnorm lipid levels (cholesteral LDLs) 4.Insulin resistance or increase in amt needed to control 5.impaired glucose tolerance. ALSO poor nutrition & inadequate exercise contribute.
What is a brittle diabetic A type 2 that progresses to a type 1
What type of test is given to people who have several of the syndrome x factors? Glucose Tolerance Test (YUCK!!)
