Across
1.Formed by carbohydrate digestion. Regulated by glucagon and insulin. Levels greater then or equal to 126 may indicate diabetes.
2.Liver enzyme known as alanine aminotransferase or serum glutamic-pyruvic transaminase (SGPT)
4.Plays an important role in nerve conduction, muscle function and acid-base balance. Mostly in the intracellular fluid as compared to the extracellular fluid.
7.Liver enzyme also known as serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT)
11.The most abundant plasma protein in the body. Used for maintaining oncotic pressure and used as a carrier protein.
12.95% of this molecule is bound in bicarbonate.
13.Fairly specific and sensitive test for the evaluation of renal function.
15.Forms in the liver and is the final product of portein metabolism. Used as an index of glomerular filtration.
Down
3.Made up of albumin and globulin.
5.Results from the breakdown of hemoglobin in the red blood cells and is a byproduct of hemolysis.
6.Makes up 90% of the electrolyte fluid. Primary function in the body is to chemically maintain osmotic pressure and acid-base balance.
8.Blood electrolyte. Maintains cellular integrity through its influence on osmotic pressure and acid-base and water balace. It has the reciprocal power of increasing or decreasing in concentration in response to concentrations of other anions.
9.Mostly stored in the bones and teeth. Participates in vital processes such as muscular contraction, cardiac function, transmission of nerve impulses and blood clotting. 50% of it is ionized and the rest is protein bound.
10.Found in the bone, cartilage and within the cell itself. Regulates neuromuscular irritability. Deficiency of this can lead to calcium drifting out of the bones and decreased bone mineral density.
14.An enzyme orginating mainly in the bone, liver and placenta. Used as an index of liver and bone disease.
