Impaired Fasting Glucose,Impaired Glucose Tolerance, Gestational Diabetes are all grouped into the category of _______? pre-diabetes
intrinsic and extrinsic risk factors of diabetes all lead to ________ - a condition of excess blood glucose hyperglycemia
normal fasting blood glucose = 70 - 100 mg/dl
diagnostic lab values for diabetes; 8hr fasting plasma glucose (FPG)= > or = to 126 mg/dl
diagnostic lab values for diabetes; casual plasma glucose .. done anytime = > or = to 200 mg/dl with symptoms
diagnostic lab values for diabetes; 2 hour plasma glucose.. no exercise before taking = > or = to 200 mg/dl during Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT)

What presents with a light-brown-to-black,pigmentation on the back & sides of the neck,axilla & groin? Acanthosis Nigricans
what are the Pancreas functions 1)of the exocrine? & 2)of the endocrine? 1) secretion of pancreatic juice that aids indigestion of all foods in the small intestine(99%) & 2)secretion of hormones, from islets of Langerhans, that control various body processes (1%)
Endocrine Function Islets of Langerhans contain: 1) ____ cells 2) ____ cells and 3) _____ cells 1) alpha 2) beta 3) delta
Alpha cells make _____ which increase blood glucose glucagon
Beta cells make ____ and ____ which decrease blood glucose amylin and insulin
Delta cells make ________ which inhibits the secretion of insulin, glucagon, & growth hormone somatostatin
What is the pathophysiology of Type 1 diabetes? ( 3 things ) 1)Autoimmune destruction of islets of langerhans beta cells2) Absolute deficiency in plasma insulin levels3) patient must take insulin to survive

What is the pathophysiology of Type 2 diabetes? (2 things ) 1) insulin resistance 2) hepatic glucose overproduction
How are the liver, pancreas, and peripheral tissues affected by Type 2 diabetes? Liver - increase glucose productionPancreas - impaired insulin secretionPeripheral tissues - receptors defected
What is the action of sulfonylureas? stimulate pancreas to secrete insulin
What is the action of biguanides? decrease the amount of glucose from the liver and increase muscle sensitivity to insulin
What is the action of meglitinides? stimulate the pancreas to secret insulin
What is the action of alphaglucosidase inhibitors? slow breakdown of starches & glucose in the intestine
What is the action of DPP-4 inhibitors? prevent breakdown of GLP-1, lowering blood glucose only when elevated

The national standards for diabetes care includes? 6 things to check HbA1c testing,neuropathy screening, lipid control, dilated eye exam, blood pressure, and foot exams
how is hypergylcemia caused in Type 1 diabetes? absence of insulin production
how is hypergylcemia caused in Type 2 diabetes? insulin resistance + impaired insulin secretion
