Generalized GROWTH RETARDATION of the body due to a deficiency of Growth Hormone.
Condition caused by a deficiency in the secretion of antidiaretic hormone (ADH) by posterior pituitary gland. - Results in large amounts of urine and sodium secreted by the body.

This produces Androgens, Testosterone, Androsterone
This gland produces Triiodothyronine (T3), Thyroxine (T4),
This gland produces Thymosin, Thymopoietin
Pituitary Gland (ANTER)
This gland produces GH, TSH, FSH, MSH, adrenocorticotropic hormone
Pituitary gland (POST)
This gland produces Antidiurectic hormone, Oxytosin
Thia gland produces Parathyroid hormone
This gland produces Melatonin
This produces Glucogen and Insulin
This gland produces Epinephrine and Nonepinephrine
This produces mineralocorticoids, aldosterones, glucocortoids, cortisol, hydrocortisone, gonadocorticoids.
This produces Estrogen and Proesterone
The Posterior Pituitary gland
ADRENAL cortex FAILS to secrete adequete mineralcortitcoids and glucocorticoids.
Most inflential of the mineralcorticoids which cause the body to retain excess sodium and excrete extra potassium.
a life threatening primary malignant neoplasm typically found in the head of the PANCREAS
"Thyroid Storm" an acute, sometimes FATAL, incitdent of OVERACTIVITY of the THYROID gland. resulting in EXCESSIVE secretion of the THYROID hormone.
Vascular tumor of the ADRENAL MEDULLA that produces EXTRA epinephrine/nonepinephrine. (ADRENALINE)
Disorder of the PANCREAS. beta cells of islets of langerhans FAIL TO PRODUCE adequate amount of INSULIN.
Hyperplasia of Thyroid Gland as a result of DEFICIENCY amount of IODINE in the diet.
The ANTERIOR Pituitary GLAND
Condition of the ADRENAL GLAND when there is a CLUSTER of syndromes. Occuring as a result of EXCESSIVE amounts of CORTISOL or ACTH circulating in the blood.
Condition cause by a DEFICIENCY in the secretion of ADH by the POST PITUITARY gland. results in large amounts of urine and sodium secreted by the body.
