Many people are unfamiliar with the endocrine system and the vital role it plays in our bodies. The endocrine system consists of a series of glands throughout the body that secrete the hormones necessary for our bodies to perform as they should. The experienced physicians at Palm Beach Diabetes and Endocrine Specialists continue striving to spread awareness, education, and proper treatment for endocrine disorders in Boynton Beach and across South Florida.
So what is endocrinology? Endocrinology is the study of medicine that relates to the endocrine system. This system regulates hormones that control respiration, metabolism, reproduction, movement, growth and more. Some of the most common endocrine disorders include diabetes, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s disease, and adrenal disorders.
At Palm Beach Diabetes and Endocrine Specialists, our doctors are pioneering the fight against diabetes and other endocrine disorders.
