Hormones affect the entire body, controlling the functions that make day-to-day life possible. Different types of hormones control different tasks, including reproduction, metabolism, bone health and growth. The Endocrine System is a complex bodily network made up of these hormones and the glands and tissues that secrete them.
An Endocrinologist is a medical specialist who has dedicated their studies to the Endocrine System and the impact endocrine disorders can have on the human body. Some of the disorders our Endocrinologists specialise in treating include:
- Thyroid dysfunction
- Reproductive and menstrual disorders
- Disorders of the pituitary
- Endocrine problems during pregnancy
