aldosterone

fluid volume regulation: Na + H2O retention
secreted by adrenal glands

2

atrial natriuretic peptide

fluid volume regulation: Na + H2O excretion
secreted by atria

3

anti-diuretic hormone

fluid volume regulation: H2O retention
secreted by the pituitary gland

4

triiodothyronine - energy!
secreted by thyroid gland

5

T4

thyroxine - energy!

6

calcitonin

decreases serum Ca by returning it to bone
secreted by thyroid gland

7

thyroid gland function

body metabolism and growth

8

dietary iodine

needed to make hormones

9

parathyroid hormone

pull Ca from bone and into serum - serum Ca goes up
secreted by parathyroid gland, duh

10

adrenal glands function

stress
regulates sodium and electrolyte balance

epinephrine

catecholamine secreted by adrenal medulla

12

norepinephrine

catecholamine secreted by adrenal medulla

13

major mineralocorticoid

aldosterone

14

major glucocorticoid

cortisol

15

adrenocorticotropin hormones (ACTH)

stimulate adrenal cortex to produce cortisol
secreted by pituitary

16

parathyroid glands function

control Ca and P metabolism

17

insulin

secreted by beta cells of pancreas
promotes glucose and K+ uptake into cells

18

glucagon

secreted by alpha cells of pancreas
promotes increased concentration of serum glucose
