Description

a swelling of the neck resulting from enlargement of the thyroid gland. Goiter
when your adrenal glands are damaged, producing insufficient amounts of the hormone cortisol and often aldosterone as well. Addison's Diesease
which the adrenal gland(s) make too much aldosterone which leads to hypertension (high blood pressure) and low blood potassium levels. Hyperaldosteronism
is caused by problems arising from the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland, also called the hypophysis, is a gland at the base of the brain that produces many different hormones. Pituitary dwarfism
a disease in which the body’s ability to produce or respond to the hormone insulin is impaired, resulting in abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates and elevated levels of glucose in the blood and urine. Hyperglycemia
seizure is a medical sign consisting of the involuntary contraction of muscles, which may be caused by disease or other conditions that increase the action potential frequency of muscle cells or the nerves that innervate them. Hypoparathyroidism
Rickets is the softening and weakening of bones in children, usually because of an extreme and prolonged vitamin D deficiency. Hyperparathyroidism
a condition of severely stunted physical and mental growth owing to untreated congenital deficiency of thyroid hormone Child Cretinism
usually result from a type of lung cancer, or by pituitary tumors Androgens
affects women much more frequently than men, and that the subjects are for the most part of middle age. Adult myxedema
A substance produced in one part of the body, especially in an endocrine gland, that has an effect on another part of the body, to which it is usually carried in the bloodstream. cortical Hormones
a hormone that stimulates growth in animal or plant cells, especially (in animals) a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland. Growth Hormone
the pituitary produces excessive amounts of GH. Acromegaly
a swelling of the neck and protrusion of the eyes resulting from an overactive thyroid gland. Graves Disease
deficiency of glucose in the bloodstream. Hypoglycemia
a disease in which the secretion of or response to the pituitary hormone vasopressin is impaired, resulting in the production of very large quantities of dilute urine, often with dehydration and insatiable thirst. Diabetes insipidus
A mood disorder characterized by depression that occurs at the same time every year. SAD
used illegally to increase muscle, decrease fat, and enhance athletic performance and body appearance. Steroid abuse
a genetic disorder that makes XY fetuses insensitive (unresponsive) to androgens (male hormones) TFS

An abnormally low level of glucose in the bloodstream Hypoglycemia
Characterized as inadequate production of insulin, therefore causing too much glucose to remain in the bloodstream and urine Diabetes Insipidus
Decreased secretion of cortisol from the adrenal cortex, symptoms include, low blood pressure and brownish coloration of the skin Addison's Disease
hyposecretion of the Growth Hormone which causes bones not to grow Pituitary Dwarfism
Abnormal calcium metabolism leading to contractions and muscle pain; hypoparathyroidism Tetany

also known as Seasonal Affective Disorder, a type of depression that is in sync with the change of season; it can be treated by light therapy SAD
excessive testoerone levels in women that result in unwanted hairiness such as on the face, chest and back Hirsutism
