Endocrinology plays a key role in the health system because it deals with the study and treatment of endocrine disorders, i.e. problems with endocrine glands. These glands produce hormones that regulate various functions in the body, such as metabolism, growth, development, reproduction, electrolyte balance, and many other biological processes.
This area includes various endocrine glands such as the thyroid gland, pancreas, adrenal glands, pituitary gland and gonads.

Endocrinologists treat diseases such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, adrenal gland diseases and hormonal imbalances. Diagnostic procedures include laboratory analyses, hormonal tests and radiological methods. Regular visits to an endocrinologist are especially important for people with endocrine disorders for effective health management.

The exact prevalence of endocrine disorders varies by region, lifestyle, genetics, and other factors. It is important to note that awareness of these disorders is increasing, and timely recognition and management of these conditions significantly contribute to improving the health of individuals. Regular medical examinations and risk monitoring can help in the early diagnosis and management of endocrine diseases.

The most common symptoms of endocrine diseases are: mood changes, changes in weight and body composition, fatigue/weakness, metabolic changes.

The most common endocrine diseases are: type I diabetes, type II diabetes, osteoporosis, thyroid cancer, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, testosterone deficiency.
