Endocrinology is the study of hormones; chemical messengers from one cell to another.

Hormones influence or control a wide range of physiological activities, such as growth, development, metabolism, level of alertness, sugar regulation and appetite, bone growth, etc.

You may find that problems with hormones and the way they work contribute to some of the major diseases of mankind; for example, diabetes, thyroid conditions, pituitary conditions, some neurological problems, appetite and obesity, and bone growth.
