Adrenal Cortex
Steroid
Stress hormone
Increases blood levels of carbs, fats, and proteins
Calcitonin
Thyroid
Peptide
Lowers blood calcium levels
T3 and T4
Thyroid
Tyrosine derivatives

Peptide
Stimulates milk production, inhibited by estrogen and progesterone
Epinephrine and norepinephrine
Adrenal medulla
Tyrosine derivative
Vasoconstrictor of blood vessels, vasodilator of skeletal muscle
Stimulates sympathetic nerv. sys
TSH
Anterior Pituitary
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone
Peptide
Stimulates the secretion of T3 & T4 in the thyroid
