she is also volume overloaded. more fluid leads to a decrease in Hematocrit.
I thought PTH increases 1-alpha-hydroxylase which increases levels of 1 ,25?
it's supposed to in the setting of proper kidney fxn
you're definitely not alone lol
And its not in FA, so fuck it IMO
I guessed it because the names sounded similar :D
I also guessed because both words start with "glu")))
same as person above me. also bc arginine carbamoyl phosphate and nag are all related through urea cycle.
Not a clue. This was so random.
this made me feel a lot better.
also, no fucking clue
My immediate thought after reading this was "why would i know this and how does this make me a better doctor?"
Generally speaking Glutamine is often used to aminate things. Think brain nitrogen metabolism. You know that F-6-P isn't an amine, and that Glucosamine is, so Glutamine isn't an unrealistic guess.
yea, I mature 30k anki cards to see this bs
I literally shouted wtf in quiet library at this question.
Lol def didn't know it. Looks like I'm not going to be a competent doctor because I don't know the hexosamine pathway lol
Is it biochemistry? Then I do not know it.
I Ctrl+F'd glucosamine in FA and it's not even there lol
i definitely guessed, for some reason got it down to arginine and glutamine
I did not
Narrowed it down to Arginine and Glutamine figuring the Nitrogen would have to come from one of these two but of course I picked the wrong one. Classic.
+1 no idea!
Why does Calcitriol not increase with the increased PTH? Wouldn't the increased PTH stimulate the kidneys to make more activated vitamin D.
vitamin d malabsorption --> dec calcitriol
