Today I want to talk about a topic much discussed and important: the metabolic diseases.
Often we hear of metabolism, accelerating the metabolism of substances, problems of metabolism … but what is it?

Unfortunately, in some cases, metabolism cannot guarantee the success of his work complex. It is metabolic diseases, primarily genetic, involving enzymes, hormones or other substances responsible for the chemical reactions of metabolism and that cause diseases at the level of organs or systems.
