What are endocrine disorders?
The body’s endocrine system consists of a complex group of glands that produce hormones, which are what control many areas, such as reproduction, metabolism, and growth and development.
The endocrine system consists of the following glands: thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, ovaries, testes, adrenal, pituitary and hypothalamus.
Individuals with health problems related to their glands see endocrinologists to help regulate their hormones. Endocrinologists can help restore the normal balance of hormones in the body’s system.
Conditions typically treated by endocrinologists:
- Thyroid disorders (such as hyper and hypothyroidism)
- Metabolic disorders
- Osteoporosis and calcium disorders
- Lipid disorders (triglycerides, cholesterol, HDL and LDL)
- Tumors of the endocrine glands
- Over or under production of hormones
- Erectile dysfunction
