endocrine system
Endocrine System
  • Composed of endocrine glands throughout the body, including: pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, pancreas, gonads, and thymus
  • Function
    • Regulates body activities through the use of chemical messengers called hormones, which when released into the bloodstream influence metabolic activities, growth, and development
    • Regulates body activities through electrical impulses and activation of glandular secretions
endocrine system1
Endocrine System
  • Endocrine Glands
    • pituitary gland or hypophysiscerebri
      • approximately the size of a pea and located at the base of the brain. Often referred to as the master gland because it produces hormones that stimulate the function of other endocrine glands. Divided into two lobes: anterior and posterior lobes
      • anterior lobe (adenohypophysis): produces and secretes the following hormones
        • growth hormone – regulates the growth of the body
        • adrenocorticotropic hormone – stimulates the adrenal cortex
endocrine system2
Endocrine System
  • thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) – stimulates the thyroid gland
  • gonadotropic hormones – affect the male and female reproductive systems
  • follicle-stimulating hormones , luteinizing hormone – regulate development, growth, and function of the ovaries and testes
  • prolactin-releasing hormone, lactogenic hormone – promotes development of glandular tissue during pregnancy and produces milk after birth of an infant
endocrine system3
Endocrine System
    • posterior lobe (neurohypophysis): stores and releases antidiuretic hormone and oxytocin
      • antidiuretic hormone – stimulates the kidney to reabsorb water
      • oxytocin – stimulates uterine contractions during labor and postpartum
  • hypothalamus
    • located superior to the pituitary gland in the brain. Secretes “releasing” hormone that functions to stimulate or inhibit the release of pituitary gland hormones
endocrine system4
Endocrine System
  • thyroid gland
    • largest endocrine gland, located anteriorly in the neck below the larynx and comprises bilateral lobes connected by an isthmus.
    • secretes the hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), which require iodine for their production. Thyroxine is necessary for body cell metabolism
  • parathyroid glands
    • four small bodies embedded in the posterior aspect of the lobes of the thyroid gland. Parathormone, the hormone produced by the glands, helps maintain the level of calcium in the blood
endocrine system5
Endocrine System
  • islets of Langerhans
    • clusters of endocrine tissue found throughout the pancreas, made up of different cell types that secrete various hormones, including insulin and glucagon. Non-endocrine cells found throughout the pancreas produce enzymes that facilitate digestion
  • adrenal glands or suprarenals
    • paired glands, one of which is located above each kidney. Outer portion is the adrenal cortex,the inner portion is the adrenal medulla. The glands secrete the following hormones:
endocrine system6
Endocrine System
  • cortisol: secreted by the adrenal cortex. Aids the body during stress by increasing glucose levels to provide energy (hydrocortisone)
  • aldosterone: secreted by the adrenal cortex. Electrolytes (mineral salts) that are necessary for normal body function are regulated by this hormone
  • epinephrine (adrenaline0, norepinephrine (noradrenaline): secreted by the adrenal medulla. These hormones help the body to deal with stress by increasing the blood pressure, heartbeat, and respirations

LABORATORY

  • fasting blood sugar (FBS)
  • thyroid-stimulating hormone level (TSH)
  • a blood test performed after the patient has fasted for 8 to 10 hours to determine the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood at the time of the test. Elevation may include diabetes mellitus
  • a blood test that measures the amt. of thyroid-stimulating hormone in the blood; used to diagnose hypothyroidism and to monitor patients on thyroid replacement therapy
