  3. What gland makes growth hormone? 
  4. Which cells of the pancreas produce insulin?

  5. Hyposecretion of insulin, or a deficiency in insulin receptors leads to ________. 
    diabetes mellitus   
  6. This gland is located in the cranial cavity and produces the hormone melatonin. 
  7. Hypersecretion of this hormone results in loss of calcium from the bones, and softening and spontaneous fractures of the bones.

  8. Hormones released from this gland include ADH and oxytocin.
