Endocrinal system

Endocrinal system >

The endocrinal glands are the pituitary, the epiphysis, the thyroid and parathyroids, the thymus, islets of Langerhans in pancreas, adrenal, testicles and ovaries.

The endocrinal system secretes chemical substances called hormone which are taken through the body by the blood vessels allowing to regulate organs and cells’ actions.

Hormones rect to stress, help the body to fight infections and are essentials to the reproduction mechanism. A dysfunctional endocrinal system would be the cause of illness due to a fonctional loss of balance such as diabetes, hyperthyroidy, hypothyroidy, infertility as well as all desease due to a lack or excessive hormones.

Once the hormonal system’s balance is broken it is very hard to restore.

Besides, even though most of us are not suffering from an endocrinal system disorder, our hormonal balance is probably not at its best because of constant stress environment and not being able to relax.

Epiphysis  ( biological clock)

Location : In the brain, at the back right side of the diencephalon.

Fonction : Controlling organ of the autonomic nervous system, inhibiting fonctions over most hormonal fonctions.

Epiphysis calcifies during childhood and becomes visible on x-rays at 2 years old. This calification process does not change its functions.

Pituitary

Location : In the brain in the sella turcica of the sphénoid bone.

Fonction : It coordinates the others gland’s action and secrete the hormones responsibles of growth, urine production and reproduction cells.

– Anterior pituitary

Hypersecretion : Growth and metabolism disorder  (dwarfism).

Hyposecretion : Growth and metabolism disorder (gigantism).

– Neuro-pituitary

Hyposecretion : Diabetes insipidus (excessive waste of water)

Hypersecretion : Urinary flow decrease and high blood .

Thyroid

Location : In front of the larynx and trachea higher part.

Fonction : Regulates the metabolism exchanges, favors growth, skeleton maturation et regular development.

Hyposecretion : Weekness that can leed to lethargy, gain of weight, feelnig of cold, slight depression, nanism.
