ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY ENDOCRINE SYSTEM Homeostasis depends on the precise regulation of the organ and organ systems of the body. 2009 July 16. When these system 18 . The wound is clean and dry. A. B. Together they regulate and coordinate the activity of nearly all other body structures. The client able to perform some minimal ADL Date Identified July 09.

The nervous system controls the activity of tissues by sending action potentials along axons. and the rate of the metabolism of many tissues. which helps maintain a normal body temperature and normal mental function. such as bone and muslces. Maturation of tissues. which release chemical signals at their ends. homeostasis is not maintained. It regulates the heart rate and blood pressure and helps prepare the body for physical activity. In general. potassium and calcium concentrations in the blood. The cell that can detect those chemical signal produce reponses. are also influence by the endocrine system. Failure ofsome component of the endocrine system to function can result in disease such as Diabetes Mellitus or Addison’s disease. whichh carries to all parts of the body. near the cell they control. • • It regulaytes sodium. The endocrine system releases chemical signals into the circulatory sytem. whereas the endocrine system usually response more slowly and has longer-lasting effects. The regulatory function of the nervous system and endocrine systems are similar in some respects. It regulates uterine contractions during delivery of the newborn and stimulates milk release from the breast in lactating females. each nervous stimulus controls a specific tissue or organ. which result in the development of adult features and adult behavior. whereas each endocrine stimulus controls several tissues or organ. 19 . • It regulates the growth of many tissues. • • It regulates blood glucoce levels and other nutrient levels in the blood It helps control the production and function of immune cells. The nervous system usually acts quickly and has short term to function properly. but they differ in other important ways. FUNCTIONS: • • It regulates water balance by controlling the solute concentratiuon of the blood.

The amino acids of proteins are broken down and used to synthesize glucose by the liver. which are release into the circulatory system.  If blood glucose levels are too high. especially blood glucose. which secrete insulin and glucagon. The islets secrete two hormones –insulin and glucagon—which function to help regulate blood nutrient levels.  Insulin is released from the beta cells primarily response to the elevated blood glucose levels and increased parasympathetic stimulation that is associated with digestion of a 20 .• It controls the development and the function of the reproductive systems in males and females. consist of a head. When blood glucose decreases. a condition called acidosis. When blood glucose level are very low. and the tail.  It is very important to maintain blood glucose levels within a normal range of values. and pancreatic islet. Pancreas  an elongated gland extending from the duodenum to the spleen. the kidneys produce large volumes of urine containing substantial amounts of glucose because of the rapid loss of water in the form of urine.  The endocrine part of the pancreas consists of pancreatic islets (small islands. islet of Langerhans) dispersed among the exocrine portion of the pancreas. converts some of the fatty acids. There is an exocrine portion. body. A decline in the blood glucose levels within a normal range causes the nervous system to malfunction because glucose is the nervous system’s main source of energy.  Alpha cells of the pancreatic islets secrete glucagon. the break down of fats can cause the release of enough fatty acid and ketones to cause the pH of the fluids to decrease below normal.  Beta cells of the pancreatic islet secrete insulin. As fats are broken down. dehydration result. other tissues to provide an alternative energy source break fats and proteins rapidly. the liver to acidic ketones. which secretes digestive enzymes that are carried by the pancreatic duct to the duodenum.

Growth hormone slows protein breakdown and favors fat breakdown. such as epinephrine. Decreased insulin levels allow blood glucose to be conserved to provide the brain with adequate glucose and to allow other tissues to metabolize fatty acids and glycogen stored in the cell. called satiety center (fulfillment of hunger).  Glucagon is released from the alpha cell when blood glucose level is low. and the area of the hypothalamus that controls appetite. and growth hormones.  Insulin and glucagon function together to regulate blood glucose levels. Glucagon binds to membrane-bound receptors primarily in the liver and caused the conversion of glycogen storage in the liver to glucose. 21 . adipose tissue. the rate of insulin secretion declines and the rate of glucagon secretion increase. increases the rate of glucose and amino acid uptake in these tissues.meal. Other hormones. When blood glucose level decrease. Increase blood levels of certain amino acids also stimulates insulin secretion. The glucose is then released into the blood to increase blood glucose level. When blood glucose levels decrease. Decreased result from decreasing blood glucose levels and from stimulation by the sympathetic of the nervous system. Epinephrine and cortisol caused the breakdown of protein and fat and the synthesis of glucose to help increase blood levels of nutrients. when blood glucose levels are elevated a glucagon secretion is reduced. insulin secretion increases. Insulin binds to membrane-bound receptor and. cortisol. and glucagon secretion decreases. When blood glucose increase. After a meal. also function to maintain blood levels of nutrients. either directly or indirectly.  The major target tissues for insulin are the liver. Sympathetic stimulation of the pancreas occurs during physical activity. and the amino acids used to synthesize protein. muscles. Glucose is converted to glycogen or fat. these hormones are secreted at a greater rate.

or adult onset diabetes mellitus (AODM).In case our patient we classified the risk factor into two categories the modifiable and non-modifiable.VI. Under modifiable is the diet because diet high in cholesterol increases number of adipose tissue and this tissue are resistant to insulin therefore glucose uptake by cell is poor and the stress because stress stimulates secretion 22 . PATHOPHYSIOLOGY Diabetes Mellitus Type 2 is referred to as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM).

Prolonged high blood glucose level leads to sluggish circulation and when the glucose concentration in the blood is raised beyond its renal threshold. Insulin is also the principal control signal for conversion of glucose to glycogen for internal storage in liver and muscle cells. In a sluggish circulation due to high blood content in blood the oxygen supply in the peripheral site is insufficient and when this happened there is a proliferation of microorganism in the case of our patient his wound doesn’t easily heal due to poor oxygen delivery and microorganism take place and multiply. causing dehydration and increased thirst. reabsorption of glucose in the proximal renal tubuli is incomplete. In the intravascular area if the insulin is insufficient and glucose are not absorb by the cell the glucose is staying in the blood stream and the glucose level in the blood will increase as the sugar in blood increase the blood circulation will become viscose. can still produce insulin. If the insulin is deficient the intracellur and the intravascular space are affected. norepinephrine and glucocorticoids and this neurotransmitters increases glucose level. Lowered glucose levels result both in the reduced release of insulin from the beta cells and in the reverse conversion of glycogen to glucose when glucose levels fall. beta cells are primary affected and there is a poor production of insulin. This increases the osmotic pressure of the urine and inhibits reabsorption of water by the kidney. In type 2 diabetes. And when this happened the glucose supposed to be absorb by the cells are staying in the blood and this term is hyperglycemia. And the age with strong heritability patterns which present as type 2 diabetes early in life. but do so relatively inadequately for their body's needs. and part of the glucose remains in the urine (glycosuria). usually before 30 years in the case of our patient he was diagnosed at the age of 37 years old. Also if cell has no glucose intake their will be cellular starvation and the person will have the urge to eat and eat and it is termed polyphagia. In the case of our his father has a diabetes also.of epinephrine. If cell was not able to absorb the sugar their will be intracellular and extracellular dehydration and body will compensate and the person will have the urge to drink more water it is term polydipsia. resulting in increased urine production (polyuria) and increased fluid loss. 23 . Lost blood volume will be replaced osmotically from water held in body cells and other body compartments. In the intracellular space there is a failure of glucose to enter in the intracellular space because there is a lack of insulin and insulin acts as the key to be able the glucose to enter in the cell. In the non-modifiable factor hereditary because it can be transfer from parents to offspring.

Pathophysiology Modifiable • • Diet Stress Non-modifiable • • Hereditary Age Poor production of Beta cells Poor oxygen delivery ECF/ICF failure of glucose to Proliferation of Intracellular: Polyphagia to peripheral area Polydipsia Hypergylcemia Cell Starvation Insulin Deficiency dehydration enter in ICS microorganism Increase Osmotic Intravascular: increase glucose pressure in renal Sluggish circulation Polyuria in bloodSystemic blood tubules Viscosity 24 .

the client verbalized improvement in sleep pattern and can sleep now from 4-8 hours. As evidence by verbalization of the client “di ako masyado makatulog sa gabi. to meet the metabolic needs of the body by intake of sufficient nutrients and able to gain weight. lagi akong pagising gising”. It should be the first priority. SUMMARY OF CLIENT STATUS OR CONDITION AS OF LAST DAY OR CONTACT Date July 9. naniniklap na yung balat ko”. 2009: First is imbalanced nutrition: less than body requirements. 2009 Problems encountered (actual and resolved) Actual problems that are identified are and have been resolved last July 16. 30 . Third is impaired skin integrity. Necessary nursing interventions should be done. The necessary nursing interventions should be done for the client to be able to maintain a comfortable environment. It should be the second priority because the client is experiencing a insufficient time or period of sleep. After doing so. and after doing so the client’s wound becomes dry and clean. Second is disturbed sleep pattern. As positively evidence by skin disruption of skin surface and as verbalized by the client that “para na nga akong isda na kinakaliskisan eh. And based on the assessment done that there are (+) sunken eyeballs and weakness.IX. As evidence by verbalization of the client and based on the assessment done that the client really loss weight. Because of the necessary nursing interventions that have been done the client’s appetite increased.

And Forth is activity intolerance. It should be identify for the client to have sufficient energy to endure or complete required or desired daily activities. weakness and weight loss based on the assessment done. 2009 There is a potential problem that had been identified during our contact with the client and this is risk for infection due to the disruption of the skin which is the primary defense. Necessary nursing interventions should be done to prevent infection and complications. Because of the necessary nursing interventions that have been formulated the client was able to perform some minimal ADL. 31 . July 9. The problem was evidence by verbalization of the client that “di na ko makalabas ng bahay at di na rin ako makatayo ng matagal” and positive immobility.
