Did you know? The abdomen is made of three layers known as muscle, superficial fascia, and the skin. And inside our abdomen, there are several organs, which are extremely important, therefore, proper care is necessary.

Endocrine System

Our endocrine system consists of all the organs, which is responsible to produce the hormones. They behave as chemical messengers, making sure that the body functions as it is supposed to. When the endocrine system is faulty, you might not reach puberty on time, you may experience problems with getting pregnant, you may find it difficult to manage stress, may gain weight easily, your bones may be weak, the energy levels may always remain low (this happens because the sugar doesn’t move to the cells, but stays in the blood itself). Several different glands make up the endocrine system. This includes;

  • Hypothalamus – This organ makes sure that the endocrine system is connected to the nervous system. Its main responsibility is to make sure the pituitary glands stop or start the production of hormones at its command.
  • Pituitary – This is the main gland of the endocrine system. It receives messages from the brain, to convey the responsibilities to other glands. For instance, it controls the growth hormone, it takes care of prolactin (which helps make milk in breastfeeding moms), etc.
  • Pineal – This gland is responsible to make melatonin, which makes sure that the body goes to sleep.
  • Thyroid – This gland is responsible to produce the thyroid hormones to help control metabolism.
  • Parathyroid – They are extremely important for the good health of the bone. It controls calcium and phosphorus.
  • Thymus – This gland is responsible to produce the white blood cells known as T-lymphocytes to fight infections and mandatory to the development of the immune system in children. Once you hit puberty, this gland starts to shrink.
  • Adrenals – This gland is responsible for the production of the most popular ‘fight or flight’ hormone. This gland is also associated with sexual functions, metabolism, etc.
  • Pancreas – It is part of both digestive and the endocrine system. This gland ensures the proper breaking of the food and produces the hormones insulin and glucagon.
  • Ovaries – In women, they produce estrogen and progesterone. They help develop breasts once the individuals hit puberty. It also helps regulate the menstrual cycle and help in pregnancy.
  • Testes – In men, they make testosterone. It also helps men grow facial hair once they hit puberty. And, it tells the penis to grow larger in order to have sex and is responsible for the production of sperm.
