Your endocrine system is a network of glands that makes your hormones and is responsible for almost every cell, organ and function. If your endocrine system isn’t healthy, you may experience a wide range of problems – spanning mood, menopause, metabolism and much more.
Endocrinology is the branch of medicine that manages the endocrine system and any hormonal problems, including diabetes, thyroid, pituitary disease and osteoporosis.
