Endocrinology encompasses a wide range of diseases. If you have any symptoms relating to diseases of the endocrine system, Kingsbridge Private Hospital can arrange a consultation for you.
The endocrine system is a complex group of glands that make hormones. Different types of hormones control reproduction, metabolism, growth and development. Hormones also control the way you respond to your surroundings, and they help to provide the proper amount of energy and nutrition your body needs to function.
The glands that make up the endocrine system include the thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, ovaries, testes, adrenal, pituitary and hypothalamus.

- Thyroid diseases
