The endocrine system is a complex group of glands which produce hormones. Different types of hormones control various activities in the body including reproduction, metabolism, growth, and development. The glands found in the endocrine system include the thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, ovaries, testes, adrenal, pituitary, and hypothalamus. Endocrinologists are trained to diagnose and treat hormone imbalances by helping to restore the normal balance of hormones in your system.
Common conditions treated include:
