a: Pituitary gland ~
b: a faucet

What: "Your pituitary gland is like a faucet. A certain hormone in your brain causes growth hormone to be released from the pituitary gland. Growth hormone then turns on IGF. It takes somatostatin to turn off the faucet and stop the release of growth hormone. When you have acromegaly, the faucet doesn't always work right and tends to leak too much growth hormone."
