5 True/False questions
Inhibin → Hormone produced by the pancreas that is released when stimulated by elevated glucose levels. This hormone decreases blood sugar levels by accelerating the transport of glucose into the body cells where it is oxidized for energy or converted to glycogen or fat for storage.
Cortisol → secreted from the adrenal cortex, aids the body during stress by increasing glucose levels and suppressing immune system function
Anti-mullerian Hormone → WOMEN: regulates estrogen secretion and ovum development; MEN: testosterone production
Thymulin → Hormone produced by the pancreas that is released when stimulated by elevated glucose levels. This hormone decreases blood sugar levels by accelerating the transport of glucose into the body cells where it is oxidized for energy or converted to glycogen or fat for storage.
Calcitriol → Produced by the thyroid gland and decreases the blood calcium levels by stimulating calcium deposit in the bones (__________ keeps the bone in). The antagonist of the parathyroid hormone.
