Ever wondered how much you know about Diabetes 2? What is the function of the Thyroid gland? Check out our online quiz and learn trivia along the way.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The test that measures thyroid function is:

    • A.

      Thoracentesis

    • B.

      Fine needle aspirate (FNA)

    • C.

      Fluorescein angiography

    • D.

      Radioactive iodine uptake

    Correct Answer
    D. Radioactive iodine uptake
    Explanation
    The correct answer is radioactive iodine uptake because it is a specific test used to measure the function of the thyroid gland. This test involves administering a small amount of radioactive iodine to the patient and then measuring the amount of iodine that is taken up by the thyroid gland. This helps to assess the thyroid's ability to produce and release hormones. Thoracentesis, fine needle aspirate (FNA), and fluorescein angiography are not tests used to measure thyroid function.

    The class of drug that is often used as the first treatment for hypertension is?

    • A.

      Anticoagulants

    • B.

      Nitrates

    • C.

      Thiazide diuretics

    • D.

      Statins

    Correct Answer
    C. Thiazide diuretics
    Explanation
    Thiazide diuretics are often used as the first treatment for hypertension because they help reduce blood pressure by promoting the excretion of salt and water from the body. They work by inhibiting the reabsorption of sodium and chloride in the kidneys, leading to increased urine production and decreased fluid volume in the blood vessels. This helps to lower blood pressure and reduce the strain on the heart. Thiazide diuretics are considered effective and well-tolerated medications for the treatment of hypertension.

    The level of fructosamine in the blood represents the:

    • A.

      Glucose level two hours after drinking a high glucose solution

    • B.

      Average glucose level over a three month period

    • C.

      Glucose level after fasting for 12 hours

    • D.

      Average glucose level over a three week period

    Correct Answer
    D. Average glucose level over a three week period
    Explanation
    Fructosamine is a compound formed when glucose reacts with proteins in the blood. The level of fructosamine in the blood reflects the average glucose level over a three week period because fructosamine is stable and remains in the blood for approximately 2-3 weeks. Therefore, measuring fructosamine levels can provide an indication of long-term glycemic control.

    • A.

      Dysplasia

    • B.

      Hyperplasia

    • C.

      Hypertrophy

    • D.

      Metaplasia

    Correct Answer
    B. Hyperplasia
    Explanation
    Hyperplasia refers to an increase in the number of cells in a tissue, which can occur due to an increased rate of cell division. This can lead to an enlargement of the affected tissue or organ. Dysplasia, on the other hand, refers to abnormal changes in cell size, shape, and organization, which can be a precursor to cancer. Hypertrophy refers to an increase in the size of cells, resulting in an enlarged tissue or organ. Metaplasia refers to the transformation of one type of tissue into another type, often in response to chronic irritation or inflammation.

      Myeloma

    • C.

      Adenoma

    • D.

      Lymphoma

    Correct Answer
    A. Sarcoma
    Explanation
    A malignant tumor of connective tissue origin is called a sarcoma. Sarcomas are cancers that develop in the cells of connective tissues, such as bones, muscles, cartilage, or blood vessels. They are typically aggressive and have the potential to spread to other parts of the body. Myeloma is a cancer of plasma cells, adenoma is a benign tumor, and lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphatic system. Therefore, sarcoma is the correct answer for a malignant tumor of connective tissue origin.

    To receive payment under most Long Term Care riders, an insured must be:

    • A.

      Terminally ill

    • B.

      Confined to a nursing home for at least six months

    • C.

      Completely disabled

    • D.

      Unable to perform two or more Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)

    Correct Answer
    D. Unable to perform two or more Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
    Explanation
    To receive payment under most Long Term Care riders, the insured must be unable to perform two or more Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). This means that the insured is unable to independently perform basic tasks such as bathing, dressing, eating, toileting, transferring, or continence. This requirement ensures that the insured requires assistance with their daily activities and is in need of long-term care services. Being terminally ill, confined to a nursing home for at least six months, or completely disabled are not necessarily the criteria for receiving payment under most Long Term Care riders.

    A sleep study records all of the following EXCEPT:

    • A.

      Forced vital capacity (FVC)

    • B.

      Oxygen saturation

    • C.

      Respiratory effort

    • D.

      Body position

    Correct Answer
    A. Forced vital capacity (FVC)
    Explanation
    A sleep study is a medical test that monitors various aspects of a person's sleep patterns and respiratory functions. It typically measures oxygen saturation levels, respiratory effort, and body position to assess the quality of sleep and diagnose sleep disorders. However, forced vital capacity (FVC) is not directly related to sleep and is a measure of lung function used to assess respiratory health. Therefore, it is not recorded during a sleep study.

    All of the following are potential complications of gastrointestinal surgery for obesity EXCEPT:

    • A.

      Dumping syndrome

    • B.

      Anemia

    • C.

      Nutritional deficiencies

    • D.

      Diabetes

    Correct Answer
    D. Diabetes
    Explanation
    Gastrointestinal surgery for obesity can lead to various complications, including dumping syndrome, anemia, and nutritional deficiencies. However, diabetes is not a potential complication of this type of surgery. In fact, weight loss surgery is often recommended for individuals with diabetes as it can help improve glycemic control and reduce the need for medication. Therefore, diabetes is the exception among the listed potential complications.

    Tumor markers include all of the following EXCEPT:

    • A.

      Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)

    • B.

      Alpha fetoprotein (AFP)

    • C.

      Prostate specific antigen (PSA)

    • D.

      Blood urea nitrogen (BUN)

    Correct Answer
    D. Blood urea nitrogen (BUN)
    Explanation
    Tumor markers are substances that can be found in the blood, urine, or tissues of people with cancer. They are often used to help diagnose and monitor the progress of cancer. Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), alpha fetoprotein (AFP), and prostate specific antigen (PSA) are all examples of tumor markers that are commonly used in cancer screening and monitoring. However, blood urea nitrogen (BUN) is not a tumor marker. BUN is a measure of the amount of nitrogen in the blood that comes from the waste product urea. It is used to assess kidney function and hydration status, but it is not specific to cancer.

    Factors associated with a favorable prognosis for coronary artery disease (CAD) include all of the following EXCEPT:

    • A.

      Good exercise capacity

    • B.

      Reduced ejection fraction 

    • C.

      Mild disease

    • D.

      Older age onset

    Correct Answer
    B. Reduced ejection fraction 
    Explanation
    A reduced ejection fraction is not associated with a favorable prognosis for coronary artery disease (CAD). Ejection fraction refers to the percentage of blood pumped out of the heart with each contraction. A reduced ejection fraction indicates that the heart is not pumping blood effectively, which can lead to complications and a poorer prognosis for CAD. In contrast, good exercise capacity, mild disease, and older age onset are all factors that can contribute to a more favorable prognosis for CAD.

    Effects of alcohol on the central nervous system can include all of the following EXCEPT:

    • A.

      Drowsiness

    • B.

      Slowed reaction time

    • C.

      Increased concentration

    • D.

      Decreased night vision

    Correct Answer
    C. Increased concentration
    Explanation
    Alcohol is a depressant that affects the central nervous system, leading to various impairments. It can cause drowsiness and slowed reaction time, which are commonly associated with alcohol consumption. Additionally, alcohol can also decrease night vision due to its effects on the optic nerve. However, it does not increase concentration. In fact, alcohol can impair concentration and cognitive function, making it difficult to focus and pay attention.

    When underwriting an individual for key person life insurance, all of the following are considerations EXCEPT the:

    • A.

      Business history of the company

    • B.

      Number of key employees in the company

    • C.

      Age of the proposed insured

    • D.

      Cost of estate taxes at the proposed insured's death

    Correct Answer
    D. Cost of estate taxes at the proposed insured's death
    Explanation
    The cost of estate taxes at the proposed insured's death is not a consideration when underwriting an individual for key person life insurance. Underwriting for key person life insurance typically involves assessing the business history of the company, the number of key employees, and the age of the proposed insured. However, the cost of estate taxes is not directly relevant to the underwriting process for this type of insurance.

    Features of term life insurance contracts typically include all of the following EXCEPT

    • A.

      Convertibiliy

    • B.

      Defined period of coverage

    • C.

      Cash value 

    • D.

      Renewability

    Correct Answer
    C. Cash value 
    Explanation
    Term life insurance contracts typically do not include a cash value component. Unlike permanent life insurance policies, term life insurance is designed to provide coverage for a specified period of time and does not accumulate cash value over time. This means that if the insured individual does not pass away during the term of the policy, there is no cash value or investment component that can be accessed or returned. The other features mentioned, such as convertibility, defined period of coverage, and renewability, are commonly found in term life insurance contracts.

    A policy can be rescinded after the contestability period has expired in all of the following situations EXCEPT:

    • A.

      There was fraudulent impersonation.

    • B.

      The policy was obtained with intent to murder the insured.

    • C.

      There was a lack of insurable interest.

    • D.

      Disclosed medical history was not investigated.

    Correct Answer
    D. Disclosed medical history was not investigated.
    Explanation
    The contestability period is a specific time frame during which an insurance company can investigate and potentially rescind a policy if any material misrepresentations or omissions are discovered. In all of the given situations, except for "Disclosed medical history was not investigated," there are clear cases of fraudulent activity or lack of insurable interest, which are valid grounds for rescinding a policy even after the contestability period has expired. The fact that the disclosed medical history was not investigated does not automatically invalidate the policy, as it does not involve any fraudulent activity or lack of insurable interest.

    • B.

      It indicates mastery of instruments for aircraft navigation.

    • C.

      It is a required rating for commercial pilots.

    • D.

      It limits pilots to flying in daylight hours.

    Correct Answer
    D. It limits pilots to flying in daylight hours.
    Explanation
    The instrument flight rating is a certification that indicates a pilot's mastery of instruments for aircraft navigation. It is a required rating for commercial pilots, and it is held by approximately half of the pilot population. However, it does not limit pilots to flying in daylight hours. This rating allows pilots to fly in low visibility conditions, such as at night or in adverse weather, relying solely on the aircraft's instruments for navigation.

      Heart disease

    • C.

      Asthma

    • D.

      Kidney disease

    Correct Answer
    D. Kidney disease
    Explanation
    Underwater diving can put stress on the body, particularly the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Asthma, allergies, and heart disease can all be worsened by the physical demands and changes in pressure associated with diving. However, kidney disease is not directly affected by diving. While individuals with kidney disease may need to take precautions and consult with their healthcare provider before diving, it is not considered a disorder that is exacerbated by diving.

      Serum creatinine

    • B.

      Serum albumin

    • C.

      Age 

    • D.

      Gender

    Correct Answer
    B. Serum albumin
    Explanation
    The estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is a measure of kidney function. It is determined using various factors, including serum creatinine, age, and gender. However, serum albumin is not used in the calculation of eGFR. Serum albumin is a protein found in the blood and is used to assess nutritional status and liver function, but it is not directly related to kidney function. Therefore, it is not included in the calculation of eGFR.

      EKG results

    • B.

      Criminal history

    • C.

      Aviation activity

    • D.

      Underwriting decisions

    Correct Answer
    D. Underwriting decisions
    Explanation
    Underwriting decisions refer to the process of evaluating an individual's risk profile and determining whether to approve or deny an insurance application. This information is not typically reported to the Medical Information Bureau (MIB). The MIB is a database that collects and shares medical information about individuals, including medical conditions, treatments, and medications. EKG results, criminal history, and aviation activity are all examples of information that may be reported to the MIB as they can impact an individual's insurability and risk assessment.

    • A.

      A. nitrates

    • B.

      B. calcium channel blockers

    • C.

      C. melantonin

    Correct Answer
    E. 2. A and B only are correct
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 2. A and B only are correct.

    Nitrates and calcium channel blockers are both commonly used in the treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD). Nitrates help to relax and widen the blood vessels, improving blood flow to the heart. Calcium channel blockers also relax the blood vessels, reducing the workload on the heart and improving blood flow. Melatonin, on the other hand, is not typically used in the treatment of CAD. Therefore, options C and D are incorrect.

    • G.

      4. B and C only are correct.

    Correct Answer
    F. 3. A and C only are correct.
    Explanation
    Fructosamine and hemoglobin A1c are typically elevated in uncontrolled diabetes. Fructosamine is a measure of average blood glucose levels over the past 2-3 weeks, while hemoglobin A1c reflects average blood glucose levels over the past 2-3 months. Elevated levels of these laboratory tests indicate poor blood sugar control in diabetes. Bilirubin, on the other hand, is not directly related to diabetes and is typically elevated in conditions affecting the liver or red blood cells. Therefore, the correct answer is 3. A and C only are correct.

    Which of the following sources can be used to evaluate a proposed insured's motor vehicle risk?

    • A.

      A. application

    • B.

      B. phone history interview

    • C.

      C. credit report

    • G.

      4. A, B, and C are correct

    Correct Answer
    D. 1. A and B only are correct
    Explanation
    The application and phone history interview are both sources that can be used to evaluate a proposed insured's motor vehicle risk. The application provides information about the applicant's driving history, previous accidents, and any traffic violations. The phone history interview allows the insurer to ask specific questions about the applicant's driving habits, such as how often they drive, where they typically drive, and if they have any specific driving concerns. Both of these sources provide valuable information that can help assess the risk associated with insuring the applicant's motor vehicle.

      3. B and  only are correct

    • G.

      4. A, B, and C are correct

    Correct Answer
    E. 2. A and B only are correct
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 2. A and B only are correct. This means that statement A, which states that the full amount of a loan is rarely covered, is correct. It implies that creditor insurance does not typically cover the entire loan amount. Statement B, which states that the legitimacy of the lender should be verified, is also correct. This suggests that it is important to verify the credibility and trustworthiness of the lender before obtaining creditor insurance. However, statement C, which states that venture capitalists are an excellent risk, is not mentioned in the question and therefore cannot be determined as correct.

    Correct Answer
    G. 4. A, B, and C are correct
    Explanation
    The components of pricing life insurance products include mortality, expenses, and investments. Mortality refers to the risk of death for the insured individuals, which affects the premiums charged. Expenses include administrative costs, commissions, and other overhead expenses that are factored into the pricing. Investments play a role as insurance companies invest the premiums they collect to generate returns and cover claims. Therefore, all three components (mortality, expenses, and investments) are considered when pricing life insurance products.

    • G.

      4. A, B, and C are correct

    Correct Answer
    F. 3. B and C only are correct
    Explanation
    The accidental death benefit (ADB) provision provides an additional amount of insurance if death occurs by accident. This means that if the insured person dies as a result of an accident, the ADB provision will pay out an additional sum of money on top of the regular death benefit. Additionally, there is usually a maximum age at which the ADB provision will terminate, meaning that the coverage will no longer be in effect after a certain age. Therefore, statement B and C are correct.

    Explanation
    Foreign nationals may be deemed inadmissible to Canada for several reasons, including health, finances, and documentation. This means that if a foreign national has a serious health condition that could pose a risk to public health or safety, they may be deemed inadmissible. Similarly, if a foreign national does not have sufficient financial resources to support themselves during their stay in Canada, they may also be deemed inadmissible. Lastly, if a foreign national fails to provide the necessary documentation or provides fraudulent or misleading information, they may be deemed inadmissible. Therefore, all three reasons (health, finances, and documentation) can lead to a foreign national being deemed inadmissible to Canada.

    Explanation
    Deprivation of blood supply to the myocardium causes ischemia. Ischemia refers to the inadequate supply of blood and oxygen to the tissues, including the myocardium (heart muscle). When the blood supply is compromised, the myocardium does not receive enough oxygen and nutrients, leading to cell damage and potentially causing symptoms like chest pain or angina. Ischemia can be caused by various factors, such as atherosclerosis, blood clots, or coronary artery disease. It is an important condition to recognize and treat promptly to prevent further complications, such as myocardial infarction or heart attack.

    Ketoacidosis is a complication associated with:

    • A.

      Coronary artery disease

    • B.

      Hepatitis

    • C.

      Diabetes

    • D.

      Peptic ulcer

    Correct Answer
    C. Diabetes
    Explanation
    Ketoacidosis is a complication commonly associated with diabetes. It occurs when the body does not have enough insulin to convert glucose into energy, so it starts breaking down fat for fuel instead. This process produces ketones, which can build up in the blood and lead to ketoacidosis. People with type 1 diabetes are more prone to this condition, but it can also occur in individuals with type 2 diabetes, especially during periods of illness or high stress. Proper management of diabetes, including regular insulin use and monitoring blood sugar levels, can help prevent ketoacidosis.
