jotajota94  she is also volume overloaded. more fluid leads to a decrease in Hematocrit. +6  
h0odtime  I thought PTH increases 1-alpha-hydroxylase which increases levels of 1 ,25? +1  
batmane  it's supposed to in the setting of proper kidney fxn +2  
h0odtime  Whoops +1  
avocadotoast  The decrease in GFR leads to decreased delivery of 25 dihydro vit D to the PCT and the decrease in functional renal mass limits production of 1a-hydroxylase. The increase in PO4 also stimulates FGF-23 from bone, which inhibits PO4 reabsorption and 1a-hydroxylase. +1

johnthurtjr  I did not +1  
nlkrueger  i did not lol +  
ht3  you're definitely not alone lol +  
yotsubato  no idea +  
yotsubato  And its not in FA, so fuck it IMO +1  
niboonsh  i didnt +  
imnotarobotbut  Nope +  
epr94  did not +  
link981  I guessed it because the names sounded similar :D +14  
d_holles  i did not +  
yb_26  I also guessed because both words start with "glu"))) +27  
impostersyndromel1000  same as person above me. also bc arginine carbamoyl phosphate and nag are all related through urea cycle. +1  
jaxx  Not a clue. This was so random. +  
ls3076  no way +  
hyperfukus  no clue +  
mkreamy  this made me feel a lot better. also, no fucking clue +1  
amirmullick3  My immediate thought after reading this was "why would i know this and how does this make me a better doctor?" +7  
mrglass  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. +4  
djtallahassee  yea, I mature 30k anki cards to see this bs +4  
taediggity  I literally shouted wtf in quiet library at this question. +1  
bend_nbme_over  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 +21  
drschmoctor  Is it biochemistry? Then I do not know it. +4  
snoochi95  hell no brother +  
roro17  I didn’t +  
bodanese  I did not +  
hatethisshit  nope +  
jesusisking  I Ctrl+F'd glucosamine in FA and it's not even there lol +  
batmane  i definitely guessed, for some reason got it down to arginine and glutamine +1  
waterloo  Nope. +  
monique  I did not +  
issamd1221  didnt +  
baja_blast  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  
amy  +1 no idea! +  
mumenrider4ever  Had no idea what glucosamine was +  
feeeeeever  Ahhh yes the classic Glucosamine from fructose 6-phosphate question....Missed this question harder than the Misoprostol missed swing +1  
surfacegomd  no clue +  
schep  no idea. i could only safely eliminate carbamoyl phosphate because that's urea cycle +  
kernicteruscandycorn  NOPE! +  
chediakhigashi  nurp +  
kidokick  just adding in to say, nope. +  
flvent2120  Lol I didn't either. I think this is just critical thinking though. The amine has to come from somewhere. Glutamine/glutamate is known to transfer amines at the least +1

kuhnboom  Why does Calcitriol not increase with the increased PTH? Wouldn't the increased PTH stimulate the kidneys to make more activated vitamin D. +1  
batmane  vitamin d malabsorption --> dec calcitriol +4  
peridot  @kuhnboom Yes, while PTH stimulates the kidneys to make more active vitamin D (calcitriol), you need vitamin D precursors to begin with in order to do that. If you have vitamin D malabsorption, then the activated form won't be high even with high levels of PTH. Therefore, calcitriol is decreased. +  
cbreland  Also, Vitamin D causes Ca and Phosphate absorption in the intestines. A lack of activated vitamin D would cause more Ca/Phosp wasting +
