People in Georgia are probably aware of the major organs and body parts they have and are aware of their basic functions. However, there are many parts in the body that people may not be aware of and if they have heard of them may not know their functions or what they do for the body. When these various organs and body parts stop working properly though, people become well aware of them and what they were doing for their bodies. One of these is the endocrine system.

This system is primarily made up of the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, and adrenal gland. These glands regulate hormones in the body to keep them balanced. However, when they are not operating properly too much or too little of a hormone may be released. This may not seem like a major deal, but when the hormones are not balanced the body can have major problems. Disorders can affect the heart function, cause diabetes, kidney failure, ketoacidosis, hypertension, anxiety, mood disorders and many other problems.

If people have these disorders, there are many things in their life that they may not be able to do, including working or they may need to drastically cut their hours. If people are unable to work, they are unable to earn an income and meet their monthly obligations. People may also incur significant medical bills as well as they treat these various disorders. People in this situation may be able to receive social security disability benefits though, which can be used to make up for the income they lost because of the disorders.

Everyone in Georgia will experience various problems with their bodies throughout life. This could be injuries, illnesses, disorders and other problems. These problems can create very big problems for people’s daily lives and can force them to stop working, which creates a whole new problem. People may be entitled to SSDI benefits which can be extremely valuable as they get better. Experienced attorneys understand the importance of these benefits and may be able to help one receive them.
