Describe an example of “abnormal” endocrine function by selecting a gland, a hormone it is supposed to release, and how the target organs are affected when that specific endocrine process does not function properly. How would you explain the process to a younger patient? Offer at least one analogy, and any other means of explanation you can think of.

    Which gland do you want to pick? Repost with a specific choice, so we can attempt to help.

    It would also help to define what you mean by "younger." Grade school? Teenager? Young adult?

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
