Endocrinology is a branch of medical biology which primarily deals with the endocrine system including its diseases. It is a very broad field of medicine which has many¬†sub-specialties¬† Among the diseases that are related to the endocrine system included the Addison’s disease, Diabetes, the Conn’s syndrome and Cushing’s syndrome, Thyroiditis, hyperparathyroidism, Osteoporosis, Pituitary adenomas, Cushing’s disease. Hypogonadism, Kallmann syndrome, Ovarian and Testicular failure, Gender identity disorder, Amenorrhea, Multiple endocrine neoplasia and Incidentaloma among many others.
