Endocrinology - Overview

What is endocrinology?

Endocrinology is a medical specialty that studies and treats medical conditions related to the endocrine system.

The endocrine system is a network of hormone-producing glands. These glands function as a system to communicate with each other so as to coordinate and control many bodily activities and functions. These include:

  • Growth
  • Fertility
  • Metabolism and weight
  • Blood sugar control
  • Managing stress
  • Bone

When parts of the endocrine system do not work, it can lead to health problems.

Endocrinologists specialise in diagnosing and treating health conditions related to endocrine glands and hormones.
