THIS HOMEWORK IS TO HELP YOU ASSIMILATE, RE-ENFORCE AND RETAIN THE INFORMATION ON ENDOCRINE SYSTEM AND HORMONES. IT IS A PEER REVIEWED AND GRADED ASSIGNMENT. AND I WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOUR WORK.
PEER REVIEWS WILL APPEAR ANONYMOUSLY TO EVERYONE AND EACH STUDENT WILL HAVE 2 PEER REVIEWS.
Hormone
Organ That Secretes The Hormone

Remember that to know these hormones and actions effortlessly, you will need to study them using the following points:
The name of the Hormone and where it is produced
The Stimulus for the Hormone production
The Inhibition to the Hormone production
The Target tissue or organ of the hormone (otherwise put as where the receptor for the hormone is)
The Actions of the hormone
The Second Messenger System of the hormone
Miscellaneous disease/s caused by the hormone’s deficiency or excess.
For miscellaneous diseases or syndromes, look up
Prolactinomas – Prolactin (Pituitary)
Acromegaly, Gigantism and Dwarfism – Growth Hormone (Pituitary)
Diabetes Insipidus – ADH (Pituitary)
Sheehan’s Syndrome – Prolactin (Pituitary)
Hyper- [Graves disease] and Hypothyroidism [Hashimotos] – T3 and T4 (Thyroid gland)
Hyper- and Hypocalcemia – PTH (Parathyroid gland)
Diabetes Mellitus Types 1 and 2 – Insulin (Pancreas)
Diabetic Ketoacidosis – Insulin and Glucagon (Pancreas)
Glucagonoma – Glucagon (Pancreas)
Conn’s Syndrome – Aldosterone (Adrenal Cortex)
Cushing’s Syndrome – Cortisol (Adrenal Cortex)
Addison’s disease – Cortisol (Adrenal Cortex)
Pheochromocytoma – Catecholamines esp Epinephrine and Norepinephrine (Adrenal Medulla).
Finally, for every disease that you look at, please try to find 2 or 3
other diseases that have some similar symptoms. This is called
differential diagnosis. You should have a few that you would say if it
is NOT this, then it could be this or this.
Thank you.
