If a person is suffering from type 2 diabetes their cells can’t let glucose get in If cell can’t get glucose in, it’ll let in fat It’ll take fat in process it and burn it
It has a lot of intermediate metabolic products that run all around your body, such as fatty acids If it runs around in your body it lowers your pH Some of the intermediate products are turned into LDL or HDL High density lypo proteins, it is a big protein carrying around a little piece of fat LDL is a big piece of fat carrying around a tiny piece of protein If blood vessel is inflamed it clings and accumulates and its called plaque and blood vessel surfaces over it and its like an abscess and it decreases diameter of blood pressure causing it to raise and it hurts the heart and puts strain on it Diabetes affects the cardiovascular system more than anything If your blood vessels are narrowed by the feet or finger the blood flow is less and you don’t feel because the neurons don’t have oxygen to function And if you can’t feel you can get an infection that you are unaware of Adrenal glands looked layered 3 zonas and a medulla its made of postganglionic neurons that have been modified (medulla) the job is to release epinephrine (medulla)its only if you have an abnormality (medulla) androgens become testosteroneestrogen is made there as well if everything is fine in your life the hormones are just supplemental they don’t set your levels they are secondary when females go through menopause the quit making estrogen from the ovaries and they are still making androgens and its masculine the outer layer of the adrenal cortex is called the zona glomerulosa and it makes a lot of hormones called mineral corticoid like sodium and potassium mineral the cells in there are to release aldosterone when aldosterone is released it goes to the kidney aldosterone is gene activation it’ll slip into the cell and look for a receptor and crack the whipit tells sodium to go into the blood and tells potassium to go into the urine every time a sodium enters it brings with it a water you are increasing your blood volume which will raise your blood pressure this is why you don’t pile salt onto your food because it brings in a lot of water and increases your blood pressure what does aldosterone do? It is a player in making sure your blood pressure doesn’t get too low aldosterone plays a role in low blood pressure level of potassium is high aldosterone needs to be made so potassium can be pumped inthe urine so we bring in NA H2O so it can raise the blood pressure ACTRH is the hypothalamus ACTH is the ANT. PIT.
Zona Fasicullatta is the adrenal cortexCortisol goes back and informs the hypothalamus and some goes all around the body Aldosterone is controlled by humoral just like parathormone, thyrocalitonin, insulin, and glucagon Cortisol is your stress hormone Stress told hypothalamus to make ACTHRH and it goes down to ant pit and CAMP
