Endocrinology is the branch of medicine concerned with the endocrine system in the human body. The endocrine system is a system of glands that secrete hormones. The endocrine system consists of the major glands that include the pineal gland, pituitary gland, pancreas, ovaries, testes, thyroid gland, parathyroid gland, hypothalamus, and adrenal glands. The hypothalamus and pituitary gland are neuroendocrine organs.
Hormones are chemicals that affect the actions and reactions of different organ systems of the body. Examples include thyroid hormone, growth hormone, and insulin. The medical specialty of endocrinology involves the diagnostic evaluation of a wide variety of symptoms and variations along with the long-term management of disorders of deficiency or excess of one or more hormones.
Most endocrine disorders are chronic diseases that need lifelong care. Some of the most common endocrine diseases include diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, obesity, metabolic syndrome, disorders of puberty such as delayed puberty and early puberty, short stature, osteoporosis, and some menstrual disorders such as PCOS.
