This means that there are a vast variety of cells to choose from that are located in three separate systems of the body. These systems are known as the endocrine system, the nervous system, and the immune system. This manual is designed to help you with the important and difficult task of understanding and comprehending what each major system does, and choosing a specific cell that you would like to become in each system.
Endocrine System
Commonly asked questions.
Q: What exactly is the endocrine system?
A: The endocrine system is a complex network of glands and hormones that regulates many of the body's functions, including growth, development and maturation, as well as the way various organs operate. The endocrine glands -- including the pituitary, thyroid, adrenal, thymus, pancreas, ovaries, and testes -- release carefully-measured amounts of hormones into the bloodstream that act as natural chemical messengers, traveling to different parts of the body in order to control and adjust many life functions.
Q: How do hormones only trigger responses from certain organs if they are transported through the entire body?
A: Because every hormone has a specific shape and requires a specifically shaped receptor to be received by. These receptors are only found on the target location.
Q: What are causes of disorders within the endocrine system?
A: There are two basic categories of endocrine system disorders.
• Endocrine disease that results when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone, called a hormone imbalance.
• Endocrine disease due to the development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect hormone levels.
The endocrine's feedback system helps control the balance of hormones in the bloodstream. If your body has too much or too little of a certain hormone, the feedback system signals the proper gland or glands to correct the problem. If a problem occurs in this feedback system it can cause an under or over stimulation of a response in the body. An example of an under stimulation is caused by a lack of insulin, which leads to high unregulated blood glucose levels, this disorder is known as diabetes. An example of an overstimulation is hypoglycemia which is caused by an excessive amount of insulin which causes a raised blood glucose level.

What you could become

There is a vast variety of hormones you could become in the endocrine system but this manual will focus on one hormone specifically known as Progesterone.
Progesterone is a steroid found in females that promotes the growth of the uterine lining. It is a lipid soluble hormone which means it can easily pass through the cell membrane and its receptors located on the inside of the cell. It is regulated by a large system of glands that starts with the hypothalamus gland, the hypothalamus gland…
