Metabolic Disorders

Metabolism is the chemical process by which a body uses to transform the food into the fuel that keeps us alive. Nutrition (food) consists of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. These substances are broken down by enzymes in the digestive system and then carried to the cells where they can be used as energy fuel.

A metabolic disorder happens when the digestion procedure fails and makes the body to have either excessively or too little of the nutrients expected to remain healthy. Metabolic disorders can take many forms. This includes:

·         A missing enzyme or vitamin.

·         Abnormal chemical reactions that hinder metabolic processes.

·         A disease in the liver, pancreas, endocrine glands, or other organs which are involved in metabolism.

·         Nutritional deficiencies.
