Endocrine Gland and Disorders


Endocrine function makes hormone that control moods, growth and development, metabolism, organs, and reproduction.
The endocrine gland send those hormones into the bloodstream so they can travel to other parts of the body. The gland regulates what proportion of every hormone is released.
