Endocrinology

Endocrinology is the study of the effects of hormones on the human body. When hormones are released into the bloodstream, they affect the function of cells in other parts of the body. Hormones can be released by glands such as the hypothalamus and pituitary in the brain, thyroid, adrenals, pancreas and sex organs.
