My Third Left "Nipple" Comment By FatCatAnna Added: Apr 30, 2016 Hey there readers - you can see another #dblog on my i-port experience that is a year later than the one you are reading here. Endocrine glands are ductless glands that produce and release hormones to the blood through diffusion.
Endocrine glands may be strictly endocrine, such as the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, pineal and thymus; or they may be organs that have hormone production as one of many functions, such as the pancreas, gonads, hypothalamus, and others. Hormones are long-distance chemical signals that are secreted by the cells to the extracellular fluid and regulate the metabolic functions of other cells. Most hormones are amino acid based, but gonadal and adrenocortical hormones are steroids, derived from cholesterol. Water-soluble hormones (all amino acid-based hormones except thyroid hormone) exert their effects through an intracellular second messenger that is activated when a hormone binds to a membrane receptor.
Lipid-soluble hormones (steroids and thyroid hormone) diffuse into the cell, where they bind to intracellular receptors, migrate to the nucleus, and activate specific target sequences of DNA. Target cell response depends on three factors: blood levels of the hormone, relative numbers of target cell receptors, and affinity of the receptor for the hormone. The concentration of a hormone reflects its rate of release, and the rate of inactivation and removal from the body.
The half-life of a hormone is the duration of time a hormone remains in the blood, and is shortest for water-soluble hormones. Permissiveness occurs when one hormone cannot exert its full effect without another hormone being present (reproductive hormones need thyroxine to properly stimulate development of reproductive organs). Synergism occurs when more than one hormone produces the same effects in a target cell, and their combined effects are amplified (glucagon + epinephrine together stimulate more glucose release from the liver than when each acts alone). Antagonism occurs when one hormone opposes the action of another hormone (glucagon antagonizes insulin).
Nervous system modulation allows hormone secretion to be modified by the nervous stimulation in response to changing body needs. The pituitary gland is connected to the hypothalamus via a stalk, the infundibulum, and consists of two lobes: the anterior pituitary, or adenohypophysis, and the posterior pituitary, or neurohypophysis. Two neurohormones are synthesized by the hypothalamus and secreted by the posterior pituitary. Growth hormone (GH) indirectly (through insulin-like growth factors, IGFs) stimulates body cells to increase in size and divide.
Direct effects are insulin-sparing: mobilization of fatty acids for fuel, inhibition of insulin activity, release of glucose from liver to blood, and stimulation of amino acid uptake by cells. The thyroid gland consists of hollow follicles with follicle cells that produce thyroglobulin, and parafollicular cells that produce calcitonin. Thyroid hormone consists of two amine hormones: thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), that act on all body cells to increase basal metabolic rate and body heat production. The parathyroid glands contain chief cells that secrete parathyroid hormone, or parathormone. The adrenal glands, or suprarenal glands, consist of two regions: an inner adrenal medulla and an outer adrenal cortex. The adrenal cortex produces corticosteroids from three distinct regions: the zona glomerulosa, the zona fasciculata, and the zona reticularis. The adrenal medulla contains chromaffin cells that synthesize epinephrine and norepinephrine (stimulus is acetylcholine released by preganglionic sympathetic fibers).

Insulin is an anabolic hormone and will stimulate not only glucose uptake but also storage in the form of glycogen (glycogenesis), fat (lipogenesis) and amino acid incorporation into proteins (inhibits amino acid breakdown by liver to form new glucose molecules - gluconeogenesis). Stimuli for insulin release are primarily high blood glucose levels but insulin release is also potentiated by rising blood levels of amino acids and fatty acids and release of acetylcholine by parasympathetic neurons (all of these things happen after a meal). Glucagon is released by the pancreas in response to low blood glucose levels (primarily) and raises blood glucose levels back to within normal range by stimulating glycogenolysis, gluconeogenesis, and release of glucose to the blood by the liver. Indirectly receives input from the visual pathways in order to determine the timing of day and night.
Adipose tissue produces leptin, which acts on the CNS to produce a feeling of satiety; secretion is proportional to fat stores. Adipocytes also produce adiponectin, which enhances insulin activity, and resistin, an insulin antagonist. Osteoblasts in bone produce osteocalcin, which stimulates pancreatic beta cells to divide and secrete more insulin.
Adiponectin levels are low in type II diabetes, suggesting higher levels may help reverse the insulin resistance characteristic of type II diabetes. Endocrine glands derived from mesoderm produce steroid hormones; those derived from ectoderm or endoderm produce amines, peptides, or protein hormones. Environmental pollutants have been demonstrated to have effects on sex hormones, thyroid hormone, and glucocorticoids. A1c test: medlineplus medical encyclopedia, A1c is a lab test that shows the average level of blood sugar (glucose) over the previous 3 months.

Team Novo Nordisk is a global all-diabetes sports team of cyclists, triathletes and runners.
When diagnosed with diabetes, many people think it means they won’t be able to live life the way they’d hoped. Throughout the year, the Team Novo Nordisk athletes compete in hundreds of sporting events around the world, and the professional cycling team competes in major professional races on the International Cycling Union (UCI) Professional Continental Tour. Your blood glucose can go up or down during exercise, so you may need to adjust your food intake or insulin (if you take insulin to manage your diabetes).4 Please discuss this with your healthcare professional.
If you are unsure of how to manage your diabetes during exercise, speak to your healthcare professional. As well as what you eat, the intensity and duration of activity, and even the weather can affect blood glucose, so it’s important to check your blood glucose before, during and after exercise.
Most guidelines for people with diabetes recommend physical activity several times a  week.
There are many ways you can get active, from taking part in sport, going for a brisk walk, dancing, swimming, or even simply taking the stairs instead of the lift – anything that raises your heart rate and breathing rate counts.
Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, cut down on saturated fat, eat less sugar, and opt for whole grains rather than refined carbohydrates.
If you live with diabetes, it’s important to speak to your healthcare professional before taking up exercise, changing exercise routine, or increasing the intensity or duration  of exercise.

We’ve heard a lot of myths and misconceptions about diabetes. Now, it’s our turn to share our perspective and set the record straight. Team Novo Nordisk riders have to manage their diabetes while competing with the world’s top cyclists in some of the most difficult sporting events in the world. Team Novo Nordisk’s ultimate goal is to send an all-diabetes roster to the Tour de France by the year 2021, the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin and of life for people with diabetes.

The stimulus for GHRH release is low blood levels of GH as well as hypoglycemia, low blood levels of fatty acids, and high blood levels of amino acids. Hypersecretion of GH in childhood results in gigantism; in adulthood hypersecretion of GH causes acromegaly (increase in size of flat bones after epiphyseal plates of long bones have sealed). Thryroid releasing hormone (TRH) from the hypothalamus stimulates TSH release; Thyroid hormone (Thyroxine) exerts negative feedback control of both TRH and TSH.
Excretion of ketoacids (with their negative charge) by the kidney is accompanied by loss of cations, particularly K+ and Na+. Secretion of resistin is proportional to fat stores; secretion of adiponectin is inversely proportional to fat stores.
The team is spearheaded by the world’s first all-diabetes professional cycling team, and also includes a women’s cyclists team, a development cycling team, a junior cycling team, cross and mountain bikers, a team of runners and triathletes, and a team of cyclists with type 2 diabetes. The Team Novo Nordisk athletes are people with diabetes who happen to have a talent and a strong desire to not let their condition stop them competing at the top level. Our bodies usually break down carbohydrates and sugary foods into glucose, a form of sugar which is absorbed by the body’s cells and used for energy.
Your healthcare professional will help you work out how much and how often  you should get active. That means the stakes are higher and the consequences of taking a misstep in diabetes management can impact the results of an important race. Thus, an A1C is considered to be proportional to average blood glucose over the same period of time.
This tool provides you with two important numbers reflecting the estimated impact of your present body weight and shape upon your overall health.
They work hard to manage their diabetes and through their experience and stories they hope to show that it is possible to live well with diabetes and achieve personal goals. This measurement reflects the average level of glucose the cell has been exposed during its life cycle which is approximately 10-12 weeks. This is reflective of the amount of sugar that sticks to the red blood cells 24 hours per day. Because of the life cycle of the red blood cells, it is recommended that diabetics have this test every three months. You might consider choosing one lab and staying with it, since laboratory results may differ depending on the analytical technique.
