Now that we have discussed the endocrine system and you have a good understanding of how the body communicates throughout, I would like you to research a bit more on a specific hormone therapy. There are many different conditions that we face as we age, or experience disease that require us to replace or supplement hormones which we are lacking. Using online, credible resources, I would like you to write 2-300 words discussing a specific hormone therapy which will include the following information:
- Describe the hormone and its normal function
- Where is the hormone produced, and what is its target in the body?
- Describe the disease or condition which requires supplementation
- What would be the result if a person completely lacked this particular hormone?
Please use well thought sentences and credible resources. Please cite at least one reference, and respond to at least one additional post
