Endocrine disorders are grouped into two categories:

  • hormone imbalance - when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone
  • development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect hormone levels.

The endocrine system is a network of glands that produce and release hormones that help control many important body functions - for example:

  • Adrenal glands - release the hormone cortisol.
  • Hypothalamus - release hormones.
  • Ovaries - release eggs and produce sex hormones.
  • Islet cells in the pancreas - release of the hormones insulin and glucagon.
  • Parathyroid
  • Pineal gland
  • Pituitary gland - affect bone growth, a woman's menstrual cycles, and the release of breast milk.
  • Testes - sex hormones.
  • Thymus 
  • Thyroid
