Hormonal health requires the right balance
Endocrinology is the study of the many hormone-producing glands that facilitate body functions such as metabolism, growth development, and sexual and reproductive development. The amount of hormones that glands such as the pituitary gland, the thyroid gland, and other glands produce must be in balance to nurture the body in the healthiest manner. Too much or too little hormonal secretion can unbalance proper growth and development and cause endocrine disorders with debilitating effects.
