Austin Thyroid & Endocrinology - Brainy Hormones

The hypothalamus, which is deep in the brain, is the master of the pituitary gland. Together they release regulatory hormones, which control basically the whole body.

The brainy hormones are the antidiuretic hormone, which regulates thirst, the corticotropic hormone, which regulates the adrenal function, the gonadotropic hormone, which regulates the ovaries in women and the testicles in men, the growth hormone releasing hormone, the oxytocin for human behavior and mother infant bonding, and thyrotropin releasing hormone for the thyroid.

If you ever had a head injury or any brain issue, you need to have all these hormones checked. Excessive thirst, double vision, tunnel vision, or spontaneous lactation should send you the doctor immediately.
