What is the title name for endocrine system + exocrine system?

In another language that I speak they are called "secretion system" but in English the term secretion system is different and it is about proteins in Gram-negative bacteria. enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ Since it would be a collection of all glands I would call it as Glandular System same as vascular system which includes blood vessels. $\endgroup$ – JM97 May 26 '17 at 8:01
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for your comment. Based on this article, it seems that glandular system is a synonym for endocrine system. Isn't it? fmidr.com/glandular-system $\endgroup$ – Alleged Biologist May 26 '17 at 8:07

    $\begingroup$ I don't think so because, in one of the heading it has written Endocrine system in a bracket beside glandular system, which can be interpreted as endocrine is a subset of glandular system. Thats my view. Try google ngram $\endgroup$ – JM97 May 26 '17 at 8:11

    $\begingroup$ "Glandular system" is not a valid name for that combination. There is not a single book on medical physiology (Guyton, Ganong, etc..) using that term. $\endgroup$ – user24284 May 26 '17 at 8:58

    $\begingroup$ We can coin our own term too. $\endgroup$ – JM97 May 26 '17 at 11:02
