What happens to hormones...

Post by flint » Thu Dec 15, 2005 12:49 am

... after they have done their job? Are they simply excreted in the feces, urine, or whatever excretory product the animal happens to use? Is that why feces and urine are often used in hormone analysis?

After the hormone has served its function, what happens to it?
