A metabolic disorder occurs when abnormal chemical reactions in the human body disrupt metabolism. When this happens, the patient may have too much of some substances, or too little of others, which are needed to stay healthy.

A metabolic disorder can develop when some organs, such as the liver or pancreas, become diseased or do not function normally. Diabetes is one example.[1]
