Osteoporosis Endocrine System
Endocrine: A good question. Please go online and search for articles about the endocrine system but search only for articles designed for folks who have not joined any class to understand the different components. You should find several articles specifically designed to help you understand. Please let me know how this works out.
Nervous system: It would take a lot of time and space to give you a solid answer. I would go to the library or on-line to get the information you need. On-line start with the endocrine system.
Simplistic summary: The pituitary is at the base of the brain and secretes stimulating hormones to the endocrine glands, such as thyroid and adrenals. The secondary glandular secretions both feedback and modulate brain and body homeostasis.
My endocrine system has gone haywire and I've been diagnosed with addison's, what can I expect now?
Replace hormones: Your adrenal glands are not making enough cortisol and aldosterone. These hormones are important for maintaining blood pressure and salt balance. Your doctor will put you on corticosteroids, and maybe aldosterone (florinef). You may need to adjust the dose of your medications with your doctor. With proper medical management, people with addison's disease can live long healthy lives.See 3 more doctor answers

Thyroid and. .: Of the endocrine organs, thyroid is the commonest site of cancers. Pituitary tumors while not cancers in the literal sense are still dangerous. Cancers of all endocrine organs are known to occur, e.G, adrenal, parathyroid, pancreatic islets etc. If you include testes and ovaries among the endocrine organs, these two, especially ovary is a common site of cancer.
Depends: If the endocrine system is not maintained well, hormones start to be disrupted, various things can happen. Depending on the hormone you can have weight gain, loss of muscle, increase in inflammation, fatigue, poor sleep. This all starts the process towards dis-ease which eventually if not stopped leads to disease. Integrative medicine works on balancing the body at all times.See 1 more doctor answer
Brains to Bones: Endocrine glands secrete hormones into the bloodstream which direct the activity of other glands and organs. Few examples: part of the pancreas makes Insulin to help glucose fuel all the cells in the body; hypothalamus makes hormones directing the pituitary which directs ovaries, testes, thyroid, adrenals, etc. Pth from parathyroid glands maintains bone/blood calcium among other things.
Endocrine: My best answer is for you to go online and look for the many comments about the Endocrine system. Look for easy to read and understand articles. Avoid scientific articles till you have finished the earlier ones. After a while let me know how you got on.
Common diseases: The best advice I can give you to understand this is to go to the local library and find a readable book about the Endocrine system. There are many books worth reading. Perhaps before you go to the library you might want to read a few articles on the internet that will give some ideas to begin with. If you do follow this please let me know what you think.
