About Me

The medical specialty of Endocrinology focuses on endocrine and metabolic disorders. The endocrine system is composed of organs (glands) that produce hormones which regulate certain body functions. Metabolism consists of the biochemical processes in the body that cause the breaking down of some substances (e.g. food) and the building up of others (e.g., fat, muscle or bone).
