Endocrine disorders

The endocrine system is a network of glands that produce and release hormones that help to control many important body functions.  When the function of the glands of the endocrine system is disrupted, it can lead to the development of diseases such as diabetes, thyroid disease, growth disorders and reproductive disorders.  The hormones produced by the endocrine glands can cause your heart to beat faster, control your metabolism and even affect sleep patterns.

Many people suffer with endocrine and metabolic disorders and it is important that research is carried out to help people to live healthy lives and help control the balance of hormones in the bloodstream.
