Yeah Honey. You are short. I will take you to the doctor
I don't know why I'm so short! Why don't you take me to the doctor?!
Honey, I think I have diabetes . My pancreas is having trouble producing insulin
What?! You need to go to the doctor NOW!!!
Wow. I feel bad for you guys, but this is interesting. Both of your problems are connected!
Good Morning. What's wrong?
I think I have a problem. I'm too short for a sixteen year old
And I think I have diabetes. My pancreas is not producing insulin
This is how their problems are related: Brian isn't able to grow because his pituitary gland (endocrine system) is not producing a sufficient amount of hGh (human growth hormone). This is related to the nervous system because the hypothalamus (nervous system), controls the pituitary gland. As for Sherri, she has diabetes because her pancreas (endocrine system) is not able to release insulin. This relates to the nervous system because stimulation of the splanchnic nerve decreases insulin production. Both situations involve the endocrine and nervous systems
We're more related than we think
You're right! Let's work together to help Brian and Sherri feel better!
5 days later
I feel a lot better!
Thank you for working together Endocrine and Nervous Systems!
