Endocrinology is the medical specialty that studies disorders of the endocrine system, a complex group of glands. The glands are organs that release hormones which regulate bodily functions such as metabolism (food burning and waste elimination), growth, development, and tissue function. They also play a part in reproduction.
An endocrinologist is a doctor who is specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders that affect your glands. Talk to your primary care doctor or an endocrinologist
who can determine whether you need medical treatment for your endocrine system.
Diseases and disorders of the endocrine system can be grouped into about nine different areas; diabetes, thyroid diseases, osteoporosis, infertility, obesity, lack of growth, pituitary gland disorders, hypertension and cholesterol (lipid) disorders. Most endocrinologists will specialize in just a few of those areas.
