Question

The endocrine system regulates the activity and growth of cells throughout

our body. It does this by releasing hormones which travel to specific cells and initiates a reaction. The endocrine system itself is composed of several glands; each contains cells which secrete hormones. When these glands secrete too little or too much of any hormone, a homeostatic imbalance can occur. Use your textbook readings and other reliable resources to research these topics in further detail. Then, in your main post, answer the following Discussion questions:

-Identify one endocrine gland (list this in your subject line) and describe its location and function.
-List one hormone produced by this gland:
-Discuss what causes this hormone to be secreted and its principle actions in the body.
-Describe what homeostatic disorder can arise due to hyposecretion or hypersecretion of this hormone, then further explain that disorder (i.e. symptoms, treatments, etc.)
-Choose one other system of the body and describe how the chosen system and the endocrine system work together to maintain homeostasis.
