The endocrine glands that affect human hair growth patterns are.

lts different parts produce different hormones among which are

When there is a decreased level of ACTH in the body,you have Addison's disease,but this affects pigmentation ( amongst other things) and not hair distribution.

This produces thyroid hormones and when there is Hypothyroidism,hair pattern becomes sparse,dry and thin.Syndromes associated with this include Hashimoto's and Pendred's syndromes.

What kind of vitamins help the endocrine system work?

I have a lousy thyroid, what kind of vitamin's, etc, can I take to feel better, what helps the endocrine system?

Erm... all of them?? I can't think of a vitamin that isn't related to the endocrine system. But since I'm not a medic, that's not really an expert opinion! I know that the B-vitamins help perk you up and make you more alert, particularly B12 I think, but too much of one causes a relative imbalance in the others so in terms of supplements, a vitamin B-compelx tablet would be the best bet.  (+ info)
