Forms of metabolic diseases

Metabolism is a complex system that regulates the balance between food intake and food utilization. In particular, the digestive tract, with its organs such as the gastrointestinal tract, the liver and pancreas, as well as fatty and muscle tissue, blood circulation and also the brain are involved in metabolic control. Metabolic diseases can have various causes. The balance can be disturbed for example by lifestyle, inflammatory processes, hormonal processes or even by immunological reactions.Read more about the forms of metabolic disease here (in German):
