Endocrinology Information:Endocrinology is the study of the endocrine system, which is responsible for the management of the body's hormones and metabolism. The endocrine system is made up of glands which secrete hormones into the blood stream and regulate the bodily functions of respiration, reproduction, excretion, movement and sensory perception.
Endocrinologists diagnose and treat disorders related to the body's glands and hormones. Endocrine diseases often have many symptoms, so the process of diagnosing an endocrine disease typically involves many laboratory tests.
Conditions and diseases related to the endocrine system include adrenal disorders, glucose homeostasis disorders, thyroid disorders, calcium disorders, metabolic bone disease, pituitary gland disorders, and sex hormone disorders.
