Endocrinology

Endocrinology is a subspecialty of internal medicine that deals with the endocrine system, which controls the hormones in your body that control metabolism, growth and sexual development.

Endocrinologists are medical doctors who specialise in treating disorders of the endocrine system, the network of hormone-producing glands in your body. Endocrinologists work to ensure that the different systems in the body communicate well with each other by correcting hormonal imbalances. Endocrinologists perform a series of tests to understand the problem, determine the best treatment and help patients with lifestyle changes (when possible) that can improve the medical condition.
