Anatomy and physiology of endocrine system
Keywords:Anatomy, physiology, endocrine system
The endocrine system – communication system in the body is a network of glands in the body that produce hormones, chemical substances released into the bloodstream to guide processes such as metabolism, growth, and sexual development. Hormones are also involved in regulating emotional life. They’re responsible for almost every cell, organ, and function in the body. If endocrine system isn't healthy, might have problems developing during puberty, getting pregnant or managing stress. Also might gain weight easily, have weak bones, or lack energy because too much sugar stays in the blood instead of moving into cells where it's needed for energy.
