The circulatory system runs all throughout the body.

Functions Of The Lymphatic System

  • Moves excess fluids from the body's tissue into the circulatory system.
  • Cleans the blood from toxic systems.
  • Prevents tissues from becoming swollen.
  • Important part of the immune system.

Functions Of The Organs

Diseases and Health

  • Hodgkin's Lymphoma: Unknown cause. Symptoms include fatigue, fever and chills. It is treated with radiation and drugs. Chiefs player Eric Berry had it.
  • Glandular Fever
  • Oedema
  • Tonsillitis
  • You could live without some parts of the system, such as the spleen.

How the Lymphatic System Interacts with Other Systems.

  • Lymphatic vessels collect intercellular fluid, kill bad things and return it to the circulatory system.
  • The lymphatic system helps clean up the circulatory system.
  • Those two systems do the body's waste removal and blood circulatory duties. They are also known as one big system called the Cardiovascular system.
