How can a person keep their endocrine system maintained at 65?

Frequent bloodwork. Frequent bloodwork to determine thyroid function, testosterone level in men. Esrogen and Progesterone levels in women. Our overall function starts decreasing 1%/year after age of 70. So hormone levels should be checked after 45 years old.

What happens to the endocrine system if homeostasis is not maintained?

Is imbalanced. The body tries at all times to maintain balance but this can be disrupted by trauma, illness, diet, weight, environmental pollutants, smoking, drinking and drugs (illicit and prescribed).
