1.3 Gestational
1.3.1 Insensitivity of cells to insulin signaling during pregnancy occurs when the normal insulin resistance that occurs in pregnancy becomes excessive and leads to hyperglycemia in the mother. Treatment: Blood glucose monitoring, dietary changes, exercise, weight gain limitations, and cesarian delivery
1.4 Types of Insulin: - Rapid acting - short acting - intermediate acting - long acting
1.4.1 IV (only administered in emergencies), intermittent subcutaneous injection, or by continuous infusion pump

3 Oral hypoglycemic (Type 2 diabetes)
3.1 Insulin secratogogues, insulin sensitizers, a-glucosidase inhibitors, glucagon-like peptide agonists
3.2 Adverse effects: Hypoglycemia, wt gain
3.3 Increases insulin cell receptors, increases abil of cell to bind insulin
4 Adrenal disorders
4.1 Addisons disease
4.1.1 Hormone replacement. Prednisone (replace cortisol), fludrocortisone (replaces aldosterone)
4.2 Cushings disease
