All these diseases have something in common and that is that they are related to the endocrine system. One of the diseases that takes place in endocrine system is diabetes. If you find out you have diabetes, you will most likely have it your whole life. This disease is caused by rejection and insufficient secretion of insulin. This could cause harm and issues in your body because the cells in your body need to absorb glucose. Glucose is a main source of energy and is part of carbohydrate digestion. Diabetes makes this more difficult and lessens the amount the cells absorb. About one in five Americans over the age of sixty have type two diabetes, which is also known as adult-onset diabetes. The more overweight and sedentary you are the more chances you have of diabetes, and death because of it. Although this is a disease, another disease that could be even more harmful than diabetes is thyroid cancer.When you have thyroid cancer you have an unusual amount of cells in your thyroid gland.
