" The pituitary system" By:Adelisa bajramovic

Pituitary gland is located in the brain. The pituitary system controls most of movements and thoughts. The gland sends special chemicals to release hormones in the blood stream. This gland is considered the master gland because it controls he thyroid gland, adrenal gland, and the ovaries. The hypothalamus communicates with the brain and monitors how the hormones flow through causing more hormones to follow. Once the hormone has reached a particular level it interprets more hormones. This causes the pituitary gland to produce hormones that do the actual work and regulate the body. However if there’s a lot of hormones that are produced it can come in affect with the brain causing headaches, loss of fertility and breast feeding. In this case the hormone can multiply making a destruction in the blood activity. As a result if more hormones are present it can cause prolactinoma which is mostly found in woman . Woman can be tested faster than men because woman go through adolescence and have a good chance of better results. These tests include blood testes, eye tests and scans. On the other hand men have difficulty finding the results like women do . but, men have similar symptoms to women such reduced fertility. The other good outcome of this non cancerous disease that can be treated with medication. This can cease the hormones from flowing to shrink the tumor.

The other disease that can be developed from "loss of hormones" is called Diabetes Insipuis where your body cant balance the water properly. but, if you consume more water there's a better chance of not staying dehydrated. The interesting fact is the body is made up of 70% of water. So, when your body drinks more water it levels up with the other substances like salts, potassium, and sodium. These substances work along to control how much fluid is being regulated in the plasma . The antidiuretic hormone does all this work. After it's transported in the blood stream it becomes effective in kidneys because its less responsive to input less water in the urine. The urine can than turn off completely removing the desire to drink. Theres usually 1 in 25,000 people who have this disease. People who find unusual behaviors like passing urine frequently and feeling thirsty. Most likely if it worsens making you have unusual sensation like dizziness and headaches then you should see a doctor to prevent it from adapting again by choosing to drink enough water and not overloading your system with a lot of fluid.
