Regulating hormone levels to create balance within the body
While all organ systems in the body secrete and respond to hormones, the endocrine system’s primary purpose is to produce hormones that help regulate other organs and cells. These hormones govern the body’s growth, metabolism, sexual development and function. If endocrine glands in the body secrete too many or too few hormones, disorders such as diabetes or osteoporosis arise which can affect the overall health of an individual.
