Section 3. Disorder of the Parathyroid Glands

 * parathyroid hormone (PTH) and vitamine D

        ; principal regulators of calcium homeostasis 

 * calcitonin and PTH-related peptide (PTHrP)

        ; important primarily in the fetus

1. parathyroid hormone

 1) 84 amino acid chain으로, biologic activity 34 residues 있슴

  (in the parathyroid gland)

    pre-pro-PTH ---> pro-PTH + pro-PTH ---> PTH

                                                  major secretory product of gland

                                                  rapidly cleaved in the liver and kidney                                                      into smaller COOH-terminal, midregion,

                                                      and NH2-terminal fragments.

    1-34 amino-terminal (N-terminal) fragments

       ; most useful for detecting acute secretory changes 

    carboxy-terminal (C-terminal) and midregion fragments

       ; 비록 생물학적 활성이 없지만 circulation으로부터 more slowly cleared되고,

         plasma immunoreactive PTH 80% 차지함

       ; assay primary hyperparathyroidism detection 하는데 effective

       ; glomerular filtration에의해 circulation으로부터 제거되므로 renal disease 인한

          2dary hyperparathyroidism evaluation하는데는 less useful

 2) 분비조절

     s-calcium 저하 --> PTH 분비증가 --> kidney에서 1α-hydroxylase activity

                        stimulation, 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol (1,25[OH]2D3) 생성을 증가

     증가된 1,25[OH]2D3 intestinal mucosa에서 calcium-binding protein (calbindin-D)

         생성을 유도하여 calcium 흡수를 일으킴

     또한 직접적으로 bone resorption 일으켜 calcium mobilization

 3) bone kidney에대한 PTH effect

     through binding to specific receptors on the membranes of target cells

             activation of a transduction pathway involving a G protein

                  coupled to the adenylate cyclase system



 1) amino terminus first 13 amino acids에서 homologus to PTH,

    이중에서 8개는 PTH identical

 2) gene chromosome 12 short arm 위치

     cf) PTH chromosome 11 short arm 위치

 3) 역할 분비

      activate PTH receptors in kidney and bone cells

      increase urinary cAMP and renal production of 1,25[OH]2D3

      critical for normal fetal development

         ; essential for normal skeletal maturation of fetus, which requires 30g of calcium

          임신동안에 필요한 calcium 150 mg daily에서 400 mg during 2nd trimester  

      lactation 동안에도 분비됨

       대부분의 hormonal hypercalcemia syndrome of malignancy 증가된 PTHrP 의함

3. VIT. D

   see Chapter 43.7 and 483.1


 1) 32-amino acid polypeptide

 2) gene chromosome 11p 위치, PTH gene 인접하며 three peptide encode


      21-amino acid caboxy-terminal flanking peptide (katacalcin)

      CT gene related peptide

    -- CT katacalcin thyroid gland parafollicular cell (C-cell)에서 동량분비됨

 3) in fetus ; high level

      appear bone metabolism and skeletal growth

      probably stimulated by normally high fetal calcium levels

 4) children & adult ; quite low

 5) infant & children with congenital hypothyroidism (and presumed deficiency of C cells)

       ; lower level of CT than normal children

 6) action

       independent of PTH and vit D

       main biologic effect

            ; inhibition of bone resorption by decreasing number and activity of

               bone-resorbing osteoclasts

       neurotransmitter to impose a local inhibitory effect on cell function

 7) 합성

     G-I tract, pancreas, brain, and pituitary

; *highly correlated with increasing age

; 백인 > 흑인

; *남여비는 비슷

; *사회 경제적 상태와는 무관

# 2 Peak Age Group

    ; 5-7

           - 취학함으로써 감염에 노출 기회가 많아짐

    ; 사춘기

       - gonadal steroid 성장호르몬분비 증가에 의해 growth sput

             --> 인슐린 작용에 길항

       - emotional stress

; *seasonal variation : 가을, 겨울에 많다.

; *viral infection : mump, congenital rubella

Etiology & Pathogenesis

# Basic Cause Of Initial Clinaical Finding

  ; sharply diminished secretion of insulin

    - insulin secreting reservior 정상의 20%이하일때 symptomatic DM 발현

# Autoimmune Mechanism

    ; autoimmune destruction of β-cells

  ; associated autoimmune disease

           - addison diease, Hashimoto thyroiditis, pernicious anemia

  ; *associated increased frequency with certain HLAs, located chromosome 6

           - *HLA-B8, -DR3, -BW15 and -DR4

# HLA antigens

  HLA-D3 or D4 ; 2-3 빈도높음

    D3 and D4 both ; 발생빈도가 7-10 증가

# viral infection -- triggering factor

   ; mumps, rubella, coxsackie virus infection

# IDDM발생에 autoimmune basis 관계한다는 증거 

    (1) islet cell antibody

       islet cell surface & cytoplasmic determinent ICA 발견

       새로 진단받은 환아의 80 - 90 %

    (2) initial diagnosis시에 antibody 존재

         ; antibodies to GAD (환자의 80%)

           spontaneous anti-insulin antibodies (30-40% 환자)

    (3) abnormal T cell function

         ; suppressor / killer T cell ratio 변화가 IDDM 발병시 존재

    (4) autoaggression

         ; autoantibody + complement, T-cell, other factor --> islet cell 파괴


# Function Of Insulin

    ; major anabolic hormone

    ; normal metabolism

           - regular swing between postprandial, high-insulin anabolic state and fasted, low-insulin catabolic state

    ; affect three major tissues                            

       - *liver (more sensitive), muscle, and adipose tissue 

Table XXVI-2

# Progressive Failure Of Insulin Secretion

    ; initial manifestation

           - postprandial hyperglycemia

    - cf) fasting hyperglycemia

                   / *late manifestation

                   / indicate excessive endogenous glucose production

                   / *reflect severe insulin deficiency

    ; secondary change

           - increase of the stress hormones (epinephrine, cortisol, growth hormone, glucacon)

                   --> accelerate and exaggerate rate and magnitude of metabolic decompensations

        - counter-regulatory hormone (stress H) 역할

            insulin 분비 방해 ; epinephrine

            insulin 작용 길항 ; Epi, cortisol, GH

            glycogenolysis, gluconeogenesis, lipolysis, ketogenosis 촉진

          ; Epi, cortisol, GH, glucagon

            glucose utilization clearance 저하

          ; Epi, cortisol, GH

    ; excessive glucose production & impairment of its utilization

        --> hyperglycermia with glucosuria

# Glucosuria

       progressive insulin deficiency, glucose 생산 과다, utilization impairment 발생

       renal threshold ( 180 mg/dl ) 초과시 발생하며,    

          osmotic diuresis 결과 ;  (i) polyuria

                                  (ii) urinary electrolyte loss

                                  (iii) dehydration

                                  (iv) compensatory polydipsia   

# metabolic decompensation 악화 (ketoacidosis유발)시키는 요인




# hyperosmolality

      hyperglycemia 결과로 초래되며,

         symptomatology 기여함 (특히, cerebral obtundation in diabetic ketoacidosis)

      Serum osmolality (in mOsm/Kg) can be estimated

         [serum Na+(meq/L) + K+(mEq/L)] x 2 + glucose (mg/dl) / 18  +  BUN (mg/dl) / 3

      serum osmolality diabetic ketoacidosis 치료시에 중요한 implication

  6) insulin deficiency counter-regulatory hormone 증가로 인하여

      --> accelerated lipolysis & impaired lipid synthesis

      --> total lipid, cholesterol, triglyceride, free fatty acid 혈중 농도가 증가

  7) insulin deficiency glucagon 과다로 인하여

      --> free fatty acid로부터 ketone body (특히, β-hydroxybutyrate, acetoacetate) 형성

      --> peripheral utilization renal excretion 능력을 초과시 ketoacid 축적

      --> ketoacidosis (metabolic acidosis) 발생,

      --> exess CO2 배출 위해 compensatory deep rapid respiration (Kussmaul 호흡)


      - acetoacetate nonenzymatic concersion에의해 형성

      - 호흡에서 fruity odor

      - urine으로 배설되면서 cations further increase losses of water and

          electrolyte 일으킴     

Clinical Manifestations

# 전형적인 임상양상

    ; *polyuria, polydipsia, polyphasia, weight loss

    ; variable, often less than 1mo

           - polyuria with polydipsia, failure to gain weight or loss of weight in spite of voracious appetite

    ; transient or persistent glucosuria

    ; clinical manifestations of metabolic acidisis with or without stupor or coma

# diagnosis depends on demonstration of hyperglycemia with glucouria with or without ketonuria

  renal tubular disoder due to

      (i) severe heavy metal intoxication (lead)

      (ii) drug ingestion (outdated tetracycline)

      (iii) inborn error of metabolism (cystinosis)

   - 이때 vomiting, diarrea, 혹은 음식의 불충분 섭취로 유발된 starvation ketosis

      diabetic ketoacidosis 감별이 필요하며, hyperglycemia 없는 점으로 DM 구별됨

       - 또한 urinary sugar 전부 glucose 아니며, galactosemia, pentosuria,

          fructosuria 보임

  Trauma, infection, emotional upheaval(감정격화) 연관되어, glucosuria( /c /s mild               hyperglycemia) 나타날 있지만, 대개 recovery동안에 glucosuria remission된다.            insuline분비의 limited capacity 뜻하며, stress hormone 혈중농도  상승에 의해


        DM 임상양상 혹은 고혈당의 가능성을 나중에 recheck 보아야 한다.

           acute illness 회복후 수주후 glucose tolerance test시행
