Drugs Affecting The Endocrine System: Synopsis

The endocrine system is made up of a network of glands that secrete chemicals called hormones to help the body function properly.  

The hormones regulate many bodily functions, including growth and metabolism. 

Endocrine diseases are common and usually occur when glands produce an incorrect amount of hormones. the endocrine system is a network of glands. Hormones are chemical signals that coordinate a range of bodily functions.
