The endocrine system involves several glands that produce and secret hormones to regulate or excite metabolism, growth and reproduction. Each endocrine gland has a particular function in your body, but these roles overlap and therefore affect one another. If one gland is not working properly, the others feel the effect. The most common symptom of endocrine system disorders is fatigue.
