"Diseases" are specific things. They are labels for concepts of ill health. A "disorder" simply means something is not working right
Disease is normally used in the sense of sickness, ‘an illness that disrupts normal physical or mental functions’. disorder is ‘a state of confusion’.
Disease, any harmful deviation from the normal structural or functional state of an organism, generally associated with certain signs and symptoms and differing in nature from physical injury. A diseased organism commonly exhibits signs or symptoms indicative of its abnormal state. Thus, the normal condition of an organism must be understood in order to recognize the hallmarks of
disease. Nevertheless, a sharp demarcation between disease and health is not always apparent.
