About the book

Adolescence is one of the most important periods of human life. In this period, we grow faster, we cry, we laugh more, we love it more, maybe we hate more. Our physical characteristics and sexual characteristics develop and reach maturity. Of course our personality traits and psychology are also important in this period. In this sense, adolescence is both very beautiful and difficult.
At the same time, many diseases such as autoimmune diseases, eating and reproductive disorders emerge in the first time or symptoms peak in this period. For this reason, it is very important to know adolescence and to follow the healthy progress of the physiological period. Early diagnosis and treatment of problems that may be problematic in this period or later life is important.
This book focuses on the normal physiological development and diseases of the whole adolescence period. I hope this book will help understand adolescents and solve their problems.
