John Kavila said: (Sep 20, 2014)  
I want to know which hormone is secreted by a borne.

Dilip Mallick said: (Oct 6, 2014)  
Secretion of hormones for calcium regulation in blood and bones regulated by the hormone called calcitrol which is secreted from kidney.

Mehak said: (Nov 24, 2014)  
I want to Know that How bones help in production of Blood corpuscles?

Usman Hafeez said: (Dec 30, 2014)

Will you please explain this question to me?

Sangeeth Simon said: (Jun 20, 2018)  
The regulation of calcium is done by hormone namely calcitonin secreted from the thyroid gland and parathormone from parathyroid gland. In which calcitonin reduces the calcium level in the blood whereas parathormone increases the calcium level. Due to the deficiency of parathormone, disease Tetany occurs.

So, bones have no significance in the regulation of calcium level in our body.

Omotayo Iyanuoluwa said: (Aug 3, 2019)  
Bones does not secrete hormones because they are not endocrine glands.
