The Male and Female Endocrine System
This image shows the difference and similarities between the male and female Endocrine System. The similarities between the male and female Endocrine System are that they both consist of: the Hypothalamus, which is a collection of specialized cells that is located in the lower central part of the brain, is the main link between the endocrine and nervous systems.The Pineal , which It secretes melatonina hormone that may help regulate when you sleep at night and when you wake in the morning. The Pituitary, which is actually considered the most important part of the Endocrine System because it makes hormones that control several other endocrine glands. The Thyroid, which is shaped like a bow tie or butterfly and produces the thyroid hormones thyroxine and triiodothyronine. The Parathyroids, which release parathyroid hormone, which regulates the level of calcium in the blood with the help of calcitonin, which is produced in the thyroid. The Thymus, which processes many of the body's lymphocytes, which migrate throughout the body via the bloodstream, seeding lymph nodes and other lymphatic tissue. The Adrenals,which produces hormones called corticosteroids that influence or regulate salt and water balance in the body, the body's response to stress, metabolism, the immune system, and sexual development and function. The Pancreas, which The pancreas produces (in addition to others) two important hormones, insulin and glucagon . Their differences are their Reproductive Systems. The female Reproductive System has the Ovaries. The Ovaries produce eggs and secrete the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. The male Reproductive System consists of the Testes.The Testes secrete hormones called androgens the most important of which is testosterone.
