Adrenal Cortex: An overview

  • The adrenal glands are separated into two parts; the outer cortex and the inner medulla. 
  • The cortex is composed of three regions; the Zona Glomerulosa, the Zona Fasciculata, and the Zona Reticularis.
  • The outer most layer, the Zona Glomerulosa, is responsible for the production of aldosterone. Aldosterone is an important regulator of blood pressure that works primarily at the kidneys to reabsorb sodium and hydrogen ions.
  • The middle layer, the Zona Fasciculata, is responsible for the production of cortisol, among other glucocorticorids. Cortisol is partly responsible for the metabolism of fats, protein, and carbs, and it can stimulate the release of glucagon. 
  • The inner most layer, the Zona Reticularis, is responsible for the synthesis of androgens such as DHEA and androstenedione. 
  • These adrenocortical hormones are synthesized from cholesterol. 
  • Stress can effect cortisol and cause an increase in blood glucose levels, which prevents glucose uptake into muscles and fat cells.

More to come on the adrenals! 

So sold on Minzy last night at the show<3333 she dances toooo sexy and seems just as confident as CL (just not as overboard with her baddest female charisma:) ) i love how they’re all their own color. She seems like the most on par with her vocals live as well! And dancing of course #minzy #minjii #gongminji #maknae #2ne1 #newevolution #collage #show #concert #tour #global #sexy #hot #adrogenous #eighteen #barelylegal #cute (Taken with Instagram)

are there some women really into the micro penis? Like a lot of guys are really into the flat chested adrogenous look when it comes to breasts. I just thought about it and got sad for the people born with an appendage that doesn’t operate how it should. yes i am high. what do you think?

I’m sorry (not really) but if your a guy who constantly says “not all men are rapists/misogynists/abusive towards females, and do literally fuck all to prove it by calling out sexist slurs, supporting female/adrogenous/trans male & female/every other sexuality’s struggles in society and educating other males. You’re essentially condoning those previously stated acts, also you’re probably a sexist ass fedora wearing cunt 😘
