Your endocrine system is made up of all the glands in your body that produce hormones. If your hormone levels become unbalanced your endocrine system signals one or more of these glands to correct the level.

Hormones help to regulate your body’s growth and function via your bloodstream. The major glands included in your endocrine system are:

  • Hypothalamus
  • Pituitary 
  • Thyroid 
  • Parathyroids 
  • Adrenals
  • Pineal body
  • Pancreas 
  • Reproductive organs (ovaries and testes) 

If your hormone levels become unbalanced your endocrine system signals one or more of these glands to correct the level. The inability to restore the hormone balance is called an endocrine disorder.

There are many types of endocrine disorders. Diabetes is the most commonly diagnosed endocrine disorder.
