  2. 1. Sebacious glands – they’re sweat glands, dont produce hormones
    2. i think are fat soluble hormones
    3. pituitary gland
    4. FSH – its secreted by the hypothalamus
    5. posterior pituitary gland
    6. Thyroid gland
    7. I think thats at least the adrenal gland, maybe others aswell, i dont know
    8. epinphrine and norepinephrine
    9. islets of langahans in the pancreas
    10. i would guess its thyroxin, it wont be progesterone or melatonin and dwarfinism is caused by a problem in the thyroid gland

  3. 1. sebaceous gland
    2. fat soluble hormones
    3. pineal gland
    4. human growth hormones
    6. adrenal cortex
    8. epinephrine and norepinephrine
    9. pancreatic islets.
    10. somatotropin

  4. 1.sebaceous glands
    2.not sure
    3.pineal gland
    4.PTH
    5.posterior pituitary gland
    6.thyroid gland
    7.not sure
    8.epinephrine and norepinephrine
    9.islets of Langerhans
    10.thyroidism

  5. 1 – sebaceous glands (they’re outside your body)
    2 – not sure
    3 – pineal gland
    4 – PTH
    5 – posterior pituitary
    6 – thyroid (reduces blood calcium)
    7 – adrenal cortex
    8 – epinephrine and norepinephrine
    9 – pancreatic islets of Langerhans (Beta cells)
    9 – not sure
