Endocrinology is the medical specialty focused on hormones and hormone-related diseases. Hormones, the chemical substances produced by endocrine glands, play a crucial role in regulating many body functions, from basic needs like hunger to complex systems like reproduction and mood. These hormones are released into the bloodstream to stimulate specific organs. Any imbalance or deficiency in hormone production can lead to various diseases and disorders, which are treated by endocrinologists. The Endocrinology department at EMC Hospital is a specialty unit providing comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for all hormone-related conditions for patients of all ages.
