Chapters 40-43: EndocrineChapter 40:The endocrine system consists of glands located throughout the body that are essential to manyvital functions. The hypothalamus plays a major role in endocrine function because of its controlof the anterior and pituitary glands. Hormones from the anterior pituitary gland control thefunction of the adrenal glands, thyroid glands, and reproductive organs. Additionally, GH iscontrolled by the anterior pituitary gland. The posterior pituitary secretes antidiuretic hormone(ADH) that maintains fluid volume balance by promoting water reabsorption in the kidneys, andsexual hormones.The adrenal glands are composed of the cortex and medulla, which have independentfunctions. The adrenal cortex, under the control of hormones from the anterior pituitary gland(ACTH), secretes mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids. Aldosterone, the primarymineralocorticoid, promotes sodium reabsorption in the kidneys as well as the excretion ofpotassium. Cortisol, the primary glucocorticoid, has many functions including promotinggluconeogenesis and glycogenolysis that lead to an increase in blood glucose levels.Glucocorticoids have a major role in growth and development as well as anti-inflammatoryactions. The adrenal medulla releases catecholamines (epinephrine and norepinephrine) thatinfluence the functions of most body systems.The thyroid gland secretes hormones that greatly influence metabolic activity
