Endocrinology Education

Endocrinology is the study relating directly to the endocrine system, which is the system that controls hormones. Hormones control so many components of the body, such as body temperature, sleep, mood, stress levels, and more. Hormones also influence a wide range of physiological activities such as growth, including bone growth, development, puberty, level of alertness, sugar regulation and appetite.

The body's endocrine system is comprised of the pancreas, the thyroid, parathyroid, pineal, hypothalamus, adrenal and pituitary glands, the ovaries and testes and many other organs, all of which respond to, modify or metabolize hormones.

When hormones are not functioning as they should, or if there is a hormonal imbalance within the body, it can cause major disease. Examples include:

  • Appetite and obesity
  • Bone problems
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Pituitary conditions
  • Some neurological problems
    Some sexual problems
  • Thyroid conditions
  • And more
