Diabetes, Endocrinology & Osteoporosis
The Endocrine System is one of the body’s main systems for communicating, controlling, and coordinating the body function. It works in conjunction with the nervous system, reproductive system, kidneys, intestines, liver, and fat to help maintain and control body energy levels, reproduction, growth and development, internal balance of homeostasis and responses to surroundings, stress, and injury.
The endocrine system accomplishes these functions via a network of glands and organs that produce, store, and secrete certain hormones that affect every organ in the body. Examples of these “glands” include the Hypothalamus/Pituitary, Pancreas, Thyroid, Adrenals parathyroid, and gonads.
