ACTH
...Stimulates secretion of hormones by the adrenal cortex (of the adrenal gland).
ADH
...Decreases water loss by increasing reabsorption of water into blood and decreasing urine production.
FSH
...Helps set the biological clock.
hGH
...Stimulates secretion of hormones that stimulate body growth and metabolism.
LH
...Triggers ovulation and stimulates secretion of estrogen and progesterone.
MSH
...Darkens skin pigmentation.
OT
...Stimulates uterine contractions and milk ejection during suckling.
PRL
...Stimulates production and secretion of milk.
TSH
...stimulates thyroid
TH
...Increase BMR
CT
...Lowers blood level of Ca+2
PTH
...Increases blood calcium levels by stimulating osteoclast activity.
Glucagon
...raises blood glucose level
Insulin
...lowers blood glucose level
Aldosterone
...increases blood level of Na+, lowers blood level of K+
Cortisol
Increases resistance to stress, increases blood glucose levels, and decreases inflammation.
DHEA
...assist in early growth of axillary and pubic hair in both sexes; in females, contribute to libido and are source of estrogens and menopause.
