Metabolism is the chemical process your body uses to transform the food you eat into the fuel that keeps you alive. Nutrition (food) consists of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. These substances are broken down by enzymes in your digestive system, and then carried to the cells where they can be used as fuel. Your body either uses these substances immediately, or stores them in the liver, body fat, and muscle tissues for later use.
What Is a Metabolic Disorder?
A metabolic disorder occurs when the metabolism process fails and causes the body to have either too much or too little of the essential substances needed to stay healthy.
Our bodies are very sensitive to errors in metabolism. For example, the brain needs calcium, potassium and sodium to generate electrical impulses, and lipids (fats and oils) to maintain a healthy nervous system. If your body does not have enough of these minerals then your brain cannot function at its best.
What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is the most common metabolic disease. In type 1 diabetes, the T cells attack and kill beta cells in the pancreas, the cells that produce insulin. Over time, a lack of insulin can cause nerve and kidney damage, eyesight impairment, and increased risk of heart and vascular disease.
Metabolic disorders can take many forms. For instance:
•a missing enzyme or vitamin that is necessary for an important chemical reaction
•abnormal chemical reactions that hinder metabolic processes
•disease in the liver, pancreas, endocrine glands or other organs involved in metabolism
