Please help!! Thank you

Question1


Choose all the reasons why sodium ions important to the body.

   
1. ion (electrolyte) balance in the body


2. nerve impulse transmission


3. promotes the renal absorption


4. muscle contraction


5. healthy skin


6.  increases blood pressure

Question 2

The appropriate level of hormones circulating in the body is critical to proper homeostasis. If there is too much cortisol and aldosterone, a person develops Cushing's disease. If there is too little of these hormones, a person develops Addison's disease. Match appropriately,

Question 16 options:

sodium ions not balanced, loss of water in urine, low blood glucose, decreased blood pressure


too little cortisol, aldosterone


tumours in anterior pituitary, causing oversecretion of ACTH OR tumours in adrenal cortex, causing oversecretion of cortisol and/or aldosterone


too much cortisol, aldosterone


destruction of cells in adrenal cortex (auto-immune disease)


excess accumulation of fat at back of neck (buffalo hump) or in puffiness of the face, causing a round or "moon" face, increased blood pressure, and decreased resistance to infections

1.

Note: Here we look at importance. I did not select 6 as a reason because blood pressure is increased via hormones that regulate how much or little your blood vessels dilate.

Choose all the reasons why sodium ions important to the body.

  
1. ion (electrolyte) balance in the body


2. nerve impulse transmission


3. promotes the renal absorption


4. muscle contraction


5. healthy skin


6.  increases blood pressure



sodium ions not balanced, loss of water in urine, low blood glucose, decreased blood pressure = Addison's Disease

too little cortisol, aldosterone = Addison's Disease

tumours in anterior pituitary, causing oversecretion of ACTH OR tumours in adrenal cortex, causing oversecretion of cortisol and/or aldosterone = Cushing's Disease

too much cortisol, aldosterone = Cushing's Disease

destruction of cells in adrenal cortex (auto-immune disease) = Addison's Disease


excess accumulation of fat at back of neck (buffalo hump) or in puffiness of the face, causing a round or "moon" face, increased blood pressure, and decreased resistance to infections = Cushing's Disease
