what is (ACTH) triggered by? what happens when it is triggered?
CRH
to adrenal cortex and release glucose cortocoids and androgens
what is (TSH) triggered by? what happens when it is triggered?
TRH
to thyroid and release thyroid hormone
what is (FSH) triggered by? what happens when it is triggered?
GnRH
sperm production and follicle maturation leading to estrogen production
what is (LH) triggered by? what happens when it is triggered?
GnRH
corpus luteum formation and testosterone production
what is (prolactin) triggered by? what happens when it is triggered?

growth and protein synthesis
what is (TH) triggered by? what happens when it is triggered?
TSH
maintain BP, basal metabolic rate, tissue growth
what is (calcitonin) triggered by? what happens when it is triggered?
high calcium levels in blood
inhibits osteoclasts and increases Ca uptake equaling to a lower Ca percentage in the body.

low calcium levels in blood
inhibits osteoclasts and increases kidney calcium absorption along with intestinal calcium absorption.

many things
endometrium growth, womenly characteristics
