Endocrinology is the study of medicine that relates to the endocrine system, which is the system that controls hormones. An endocrinologist will deal with diseases that are caused by problems with hormones.
What is endocrinology?
The endocrine system is made up of a number of different glands that produce and secrete hormones that regulate various bodily functions. Endocrinology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to hormones, focusing on the glands and tissues that secrete these hormones.
The most common endocrine conditions we treat are:
- Thyroid disease
- Polycystic ovary syndrome
- Disorders of calcium metabolism
- Pituitary and adrenal disorders
We offer ease of access to consultation and treatment with consultant endocrinologists, experts in the treatment of endocrine disorders.
