The Lymphatic System

The lymphatic system has three main functions:

1. It maintains the balance of fluid between the blood and tissues, known as fluid homeostasis.

2. It forms part of the body's immune system and helps defend against bacteria and other intruders.

3. It facilitates absorption of fats and fat-soluble nutrients in the digestive system.The system has special small vessels called lacteals. These enable it to absorb fats and fat-soluble nutrients from the gut. The lymphatic node can become damaged through trauma , radiation, and surgery. When this happens decongestive therapy may be required to aide in the moving of lymph fluids.
