How your endocrine system works
Your endocrine system consists of a number of glands and influences just about every part of your body. These glands produce hormones which control your body's metabolism, cell growth, sexual development and reproductive system.
Sometimes, your body produces too many or too few hormones. Endocrinologists work with patients of all ages to control the production of hormones in your body. A common endocrine disorder is diabetes. Diabetes is a disease that results when your body either does not make enough insulin or does not use insulin properly. The good news is that diabetes and many other issues caused by hormonal imbalances can be controlled, and long-term complications can be prevented or minimized.
