Question:

Which is better for a diabetic patient, bactericidal or bacteriostatic medications?

Inactive
Herisha S.
Answer:

Bactericidal medications are used for diabetic patients because they have a lowered immune system; thus they do not have the proper amount of lymphocytes (T and B cells) to fight off the bacterial infection, so they need medicine that will completely kill off the bacteria. The bacteriostatic medications will simply slow the growth of the bacteria, but still require the body's immune system to kill off the bacteria.

Question:

What are the fat soluble vitamins and why can they lead to toxicity more than the water soluble vitamins if ingested in a greater amount?

Inactive

Answer:

The fat soluble vitamins are Vitamin A, D, E, and K. They are more prone to causing toxicity compared to the water soluble vitamins because they accumulate in the body and are not excreted easily like the water soluble vitamins are.

Question:

What is the difference between a muscle agonist and a muscle antagonist?

Inactive
Herisha S.
Answer:

The muscle agonist is in charge of assisting the prime mover (or the main muscle) with its action. The muscle antagonist will oppose that motion. An example of this is the biceps and triceps and brachialis. The biceps would want to do arm flexion (prime mover) and the brachialis will assist this motion (agonist). However the triceps will want to do arm extension (antagonist).
