Hypertension or elevated blood pressure (BP) is quantitatively the most important risk factor for development of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), whereas aldosterone contributes significantly in the development and severity of hypertension. Interestingly, parathyroid hormone (PTH) stimulates aldosterone synthesis by regulating renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS). Conversely, RAAS controls PTH secretion, as angiotensin receptor is expressed by human parathyroid tissues a...

Ghrelin, a putative signal of insufficient energy stores, increases in fasting states, decreases postprandially, and acts as a potent appetite stimulant increasing food intake. Obestatin affects appetite, food preferences to increase daily caloric intake and weight gain. Leptin regulates body fat mass, food intake and energy expenditure. Triiodothyronine (T3) is a determinant of adiposity, thermogenesis, glucose and lipid metabolism, appetite, food intake, and the o...
