Caring for you as we would for ourselves

Endocrinology & diabetes

Endocrinology-diabetes is the medical specialty that deals with hormones. This specialized branch of medicine focuses on hormonal and metabolic disorders as well as diabetes and obesity.

Hormones are molecules (chemical substances) secreted by glands in the endocrine system and carried to other parts of the body in the bloodstream. They act as messengers to control different vital functions within the body, such as nutrition, reproduction, metabolism and digestion, and coordinate the organs involved in these functions.
