Overview:

This podcasts unveils the roots causes of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.  Furthermore, the podcast was intended to cover the curriculum requirement for AP Biology by exploring the etiology and the effects of both types of diabetes.  The podcast allows the learner to compare and contrast the two types of diabetes with regard to cause and effects.  Diabetes is a serious disease and the number of type 2 form of diabetes is rising at an alarming rate.

Alabama Course of Study Alignments and/or Professional Development Standard Alignments:

SC (9-12) Biology
5. Identify cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, organisms, populations, communities, and ecosystems as levels of organization in the biosphere.
  • Recognizing that cells differentiate to perform specific functions
  • Examples: ciliated cells to produce movement, nerve cells to conduct electrical charges
     
    SC (9-12) Anatomy and Physiology Elective
    3. Classify major types of cells, including squamous, cuboidal, columnar, simple, and stratified.
     
    SC (9-12) Anatomy and Physiology Elective
    5. Identify anatomical structures and functions of the integumentary system.
  • Identifying accessory organs
  • Recognizing diseases and disorders of the integumentary system
  • Examples: decubitus ulcer, melanoma, psoriasis
     
    SC (9-12) Anatomy and Physiology Elective
    10. Identify structures and functions of the digestive system.
  • Tracing the pathway of digestion from the mouth to the anus using diagrams
  • Identifying disorders affecting the digestive system
  • Examples: ulcers, Crohn's disease, diverticulitis
     
    SC (9-12) Anatomy and Physiology Elective
    13. Identify structures and functions of the urinary system.
  • Tracing the filtration of blood from the kidneys to the urethra
  • Recognizing diseases and disorders of the urinary system
  • Examples: kidney stones, urinary tract infections
     
    SC (9-12) Anatomy and Physiology Elective
    14. Identify the endocrine glands and their functions.
  • Describing effects of hormones produced by the endocrine glands
  • Identifying common disorders of the endocrine system
  • Examples: diabetes, goiter, hyperthyroidism
     
    SC (9-12) Anatomy and Physiology Elective
    15. Identify physiological effects and components of the immune system.
  • Contrasting active and passive immunity
  • Evaluating the importance of vaccines
  • Recognizing disorders and diseases of the immune system
  • Examples: acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), acute lymphocytic leukemia
     
    SC2015 (9-12) Human Anatomy and Physiology
    2. Analyze characteristics of tissue types (e.g., epithelial tissue) and construct an explanation of how the chemical and structural organizations of the cells that form these tissues are specialized to conduct the function of that tissue (e.g., lining, protecting).
     
    SC2015 (9-12) Human Anatomy and Physiology
    3. Obtain and communicate information to explain the integumentary system's structure and function, including layers and accessories of skin and types of membranes.
    a. Analyze the effects of pathological conditions (e.g., burns, skin cancer, bacterial and viral infections, chemical dermatitis) to determine the body's attempt to maintain homeostasis.
     
    SC2015 (9-12) Human Anatomy and Physiology
    8. Communicate scientific information to explain the relationship between the structures and functions, both mechanical (e.g., chewing, churning in stomach) and chemical (e.g., enzymes, hydrochloric acid [HCl] in stomach), of the digestive system, including the accessory organs (e.g., salivary glands, pancreas).
    a. Obtain and communicate information to demonstrate an understanding of the disorders of the digestive system (e.g., ulcers, Crohn's disease, diverticulitis).
     
    SC2015 (9-12) Human Anatomy and Physiology
    11. Use models to differentiate the structures of the urinary system and to describe their functions.
    a. Analyze and interpret data related to the urinary system to show the relationship between homeostatic imbalances and disease (e.g., kidney stones, effects of pH imbalances).
     
    SC2015 (9-12) Human Anatomy and Physiology
    12. Obtain and communicate information to explain the lymphatic organs and their structure and function.
    a. Develop and use a model to explain the body's lines of defense and immunity.
    b. Obtain and communicate information to demonstrate an understanding of the disorders of the immune system (e.g., acquired immunodeficiency syndrome [AIDS], severe combined immunodeficiency [SCID]).
     
    SC2015 (9-12) Human Anatomy and Physiology
    13. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to support the claim that the endocrine glands secrete hormones that help the body maintain homeostasis through feedback loops.
    a. Analyze the effects of pathological conditions (e.g., pituitary dwarfism, Addison's disease, diabetes mellitus) caused by imbalance of the hormones of the endocrine glands.
