There are many glands of the endocrine system and include the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, thyroid gland, parathyroid gland, thymus, adrenals, pancreas, ovaries and testes.
Endocrine diseases develop when these glands don’t produce the right amount of hormone necessary for normal function. When there’s an imbalance of hormones in the human body, they can cause symptoms, disorders and disease, including diabetes, thyroid conditions, obesity, infertility, cancer, and bone problems.
Endocrinologists diagnose and treat hormone disorders by restoring the normal balance in the body.
Due to the range of conditions caused by hormonal imbalance, the list of possible symptoms is quite extensive. The consultants we work with regularly see patients who are experiencing some of the following:
