The definition of the term disease is not always easy to give and what is considered a disease may change over time as a result of expectations of good health. The definitions of disease are context-dependent since its understanding exists in relation to humans who follow varied ethnic contexts. However, even with these concepts, modern scholars define the term disease as an unusual condition that affects living organisms. Simply, a disease is a medical condition which involves pathological processes linked to

specific symptoms. It can also be defined as the impairment of the normal functions of the body. Diseases are also grouped based on the parts of the body they affect. Systematic diseases attack the whole body, disseminated complications attack different parts of the body, while localize ailments target specific parts of the body. All diseases affect the homeostasis of the living organisms.

Homeostasis refers to the ability of the body to control and maintain a balance in blood sugar, heart rate, pH, and temperature levels. It is a balancing act which ensures that all bodily functions operate normally by adjusting organs to keep up with changes in the environment. Diseases have been known to affect homeostasis by disrupting how body organs operate through homeostatic imbalance (Kotas & Medzhitov, 2015). They prevent body cells from getting the required elements to function. Diseases further cause toxins to accumulate in body cells, thus leading to the developing of health complications. Some diseases, for instance, type 1 diabetes (IDDM) force the body to attack itself by impairing the normal functions of the pancreas. An interruption in the normal levels of sugar in the blood leads to diabetic coma and can also affect other body organs such as the liver and kidneys.
