What is Endocrinology?
Endocrinology is the study of hormones, which are the chemical messengers from one cell to another. Hormones influence or control a wide range of physiological activities, such as growth, development, metabolism, level of alertness, sugar regulation, appetite and bone growth.
You may find that problems with hormones and the way they work contribute to some of the major diseases of mankind; for example, diabetes, thyroid conditions, pituitary conditions, some neurological problems, appetite and obesity, and bone growth. Symptoms of endocrine disorders vary depending on the condition, but often patients complain of weakness or fatigue. Blood tests are generally done to diagnose endocrine disorders, and imaging tests such as ultrasounds and biopsies might also be performed. Some disorders can be treated with medication or hormone supplements.
