NU 545 University of South Alabama Endocrinology Discussion
This is an individual assignment worth 20 points
Select an endocrine gland from the list below. The student must make a convincing argument as to why the gland chosen is the most important gland in the body. The argument must include the following:
1. Overview of the normal gland function, including hormones produced by the gland and the action of these hormones in the body
2. A description of gland hypofunction and hyperfunction, clinical manifestations, and common causes of dysfunction
Please be creative when presenting your case. One example of creativity is a funeral for the thyroid gland where hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism spoke at the eulogy. Try to have some fun with this assignment.
You will also be required to post a substantial cross post to a classmate-not just “I agree”.
Two references are required for initial post and one reference required for cross post. References should be current within the last 5 years.
INITIAL POST: Due 9/17/21 2355 CENTRAL TIME
CROSS POST: Due 9/21/21 2355 CENTRAL TIME
