Endocrine Glands and their Hormones

The endocrine system works to regulate certain internal processes. (Note: endocrine shouldn’t be confused with exocrine. Exocrine glands, such as sweat and salivary glands, secrete externally and internally via ducts. Endocrine glands secrete hormones internally, using the bloodstream.)

 The endocrine system helps control the following processes and systems:

·         Growth and development

·         Homeostasis (the internal balance of body systems)

·         Metabolism (body energy levels)

·         Reproduction

·         Response to stimuli (stress and/or injury)

  • Hypothalamus
  • Pineal Gland
  • Pituitary Gland
  • Thyroid and parathyroid
  • Thymus
  • Pancreas
  • Adrenal
  • Ovaries and Testes
