Endocrinology is the study of hormones. Hormones are important chemicals that control and co-ordinate many of the body’s functions and are essential for our every day survival. The endocrine system includes the pituitary, thyroid, pancreas, ovaries, testes, and adrenal glands. Disorders resulting from under or overproduction of hormones within these organs include – diabetes, thyroid disorders and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
An Endocrinologist is a specialty doctor that treats conditions that are caused by problems with hormones.
Virtually Endocrinologists offer diagnosis and care for a variety of hormone-related problems.
