What is Endocrinology?

Endocrinology is a specialty that focuses on the body’s endocrine glands and the treatment of the endocrine system. The endocrine glands include the parathyroid (calcium and bone hormones), thyroid, pituitary, adrenals, ovaries, testes and pancreas. Disorders within these glands are a result of the overproduction or underproduction of their related hormones. Hormones maintain a balance of the body’s function.

Common Endocrine Disorders:

  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Cholesterol problems
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Thyroid nodule
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Osteoporosis
