All the glands together forms Endocrine system of the body. Glands secrets certain chemical messengers in the form of hormone. These hormones are responsible for many physiological activities in the body.

  • Adrenal glands: Two glands that sit on top of the kidneys that release the hormone cortisol.
  • Hypothalamus: A part of the lower middle brain that tells the pituitary gland when to release hormones.
  • Ovaries: The female reproductive organs that release eggs and produce sex hormones.
  • Islet cells in the pancreas: Cells in the pancreas control the release of the hormones insulin and glucagon.
  • Parathyroid: Four tiny glands in the neck that play a role in bone development.
  • Pineal gland: A gland found near the center of the brain that may be linked to sleep patterns.
  • Pituitary gland: A gland found at the base of brain behind the sinuses. It is often called the “master gland” because it influences many other glands, especially the thyroid. Problems with the pituitary gland can affect bone growth, a woman’s menstrual cycles, and the release of breast milk.
  • Testes: The male reproductive glands that produce sperm and sex hormones.
  • Thymus: A gland in the upper chest that helps develop the body’s immune system early in life.
  • Thyroid: A butterfly-shaped gland in the front of the neck that controls metabolism.

Types of Endocrine Disorders

There are many different types of endocrine disorders.

Adrenal insufficiency. The adrenal gland releases cortison, aldosterone. In adrenal sufficiency the amount of hormone decreases. Symptoms include fatigue, stomachupset, dehydration, and skin changes. Addison’s disease is a type of adrenal insufficiency.

Cushing’s disease. Overproduction of a pituitary gland hormone leads to an overactive adrenal gland. A similar condition called Cushing’s syndromemay occur in people, particularly children, who take high doses of corticosteroid medications.

Gigantism (acromegaly) (Homeopathy for Acromegaly) If the pituitary gland produces too much growth hormone, a child’s bones and body parts may grow abnormally fast. If growth hormone levels are too low, a child can stop growing in height. (See our Height Calculator)

Hyperthyroidism. The thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone, leading to weight loss, fast heart rate, sweating, and nervousness. The most common cause for an overactive thyroid is an autoimmune disorder called Grave’s disease.

Hypothyroidism. The thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone, leading to fatigue, constipation, dry skin, and depression. The underactive gland can cause slowed development in children. Some types of hypothyroidism are present at birth.Hypopituitarism. The pituitary gland releases little or no hormones. It may be caused by a number of different diseases. Women with this condition may stop getting their periods.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Overproduction of androgens interfere with the development of eggs and their release from the female ovaries. PCOS is a leading cause of infertility.

Precocious puberty. Abnormally early puberty that occurs when glands tell the body to release sex hormones too soon in life.

  • Very interesting!
    My specific interest is the link with auto-immune conditions resulting from Epstein Barr Virus. Eg. Type 1 Diabetes, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Thyroid conditions and Adrenal Fatigue.
    How do we stop the auto-immune antibody action that prevents healing of the affected gland.
    I would be delighted to regrow some beta cells and produce insulin again.
