Endocrinology is a medical specialty that deals with your body’s endocrine system. Your endocrine system is made up of glands that secrete hormones. These hormones affect the actions of different organ systems in the body and help to tell your body’s cells what they are supposed to do.
Your endocrine system is very important. It makes hormones that impact or control your mood, development, how your body’s organs function, and how your body’s organs use nutrients. Examples of hormones include: thyroid hormone, growth hormone, and insulin. Diabetes and thyroid disease are common endocrine disorders.
