Regulator


Human Body Section
Stedman's Pocket Medical Dictionary Dictionary of Biomedical Sciences Dictionary of Dentistry

The word regulator is sometimes used to refer to therapeutic agents - including natural substances such as herbs, oils, or essences, or conventional pharmaceutical drugs, that help to balance the functions of the body so that they operate harmoniously. Note that specific agents may regulate specific bodily functions.

The other important meaning of the term regulator is to refer to an official (usually a government operated and funded) organization that controls an industry and protects consumers by maintaining minimum standards across that industry.

Note that the term 'regulator' is commonly understood in everyday English but is not a strictly medical term and so does not appear in all medical or related scientific dictionaries.
