    • Endocrine System
    • By Paddy, Cecily and Tyson
    • Definition: What is the Endocrine System?
      ‘Endo’ is Greek for inside your body.
      ‘Crine’ is Greek for secretive.
      It is the system inside your body that acts as a controller
      Besides the nervous system the endocrine system is the main controlling system of our bodies..
      Glands make the hormones.
      Hormones send messages to the endocrinal organs.
      The organ does what the hormones tell it to do.
    • Features
      The main features of the Endocrine System are the glands.
      Pituitary Gland- blood pressure -skull
      Thyroid Gland-bone growth rate, metabolism- neck
      Parathyroid Gland- Controls Calcuim - neck
      Adrenal Gland-adrenalin- kidneys
      Pineal Gland – sexual -brain
      Thymus Gland- white blood cells- chest cavity

    • Connections
      The endocrine system and the nervous system helps the body function together.
      The endocrine system is everywhere in your body.
      The circulatory system and the endocrine system sends messages to each other.
    • Problems
      The endocrine system is very frail so many things can go wrong.
      An example is if one of your glands stops working properly or stops working altogether.
      If you don’t have enough iodine your thyroid gland will have big problems.
      Individuals have a disease called diabetes where they are not able to break down carbohydrates.
      If you have to much or to little of a hormone it can cause a big problamo.

      Getting rest
      Eating healthy food
      Avoiding Steroids (artificial hormones)
