Clinical Information
  • Any deviation from the normal structure or function of the endocrine system that is manifested by a characteristic set of symptoms and signs
  • Any deviation from the normal structure or function of the endocrine system that is manifested by a characteristic set of symptoms and signs. (nci)
  • Impairment of health or a condition of abnormal functioning of the system of glands that release their secretions (hormones) directly into the circulatory system
  • Pathological processes of the endocrine glands, and diseases resulting from abnormal level of available hormones
  • Your endocrine system includes eight major glands throughout your body. These glands make hormones. Hormones are chemical messengers. They travel through your bloodstream to tissues or organs. Hormones work slowly and affect body processes from head to toe. These include
    • growth and development
    • metabolism - digestion, elimination, breathing, blood circulation and maintaining body temperature
    • sexual function
    • reproduction
    • mood
    if your hormone levels are too high or too low, you may have a hormone disorder. Hormone diseases also occur if your body does not respond to hormones the way it is supposed to. Stress, infection and changes in your blood's fluid and electrolyte balance can also influence hormone levels.in the United States, the most common endocrine disease is diabetes. There are many others. They are usually treated by controlling how much hormone your body makes. Hormone supplements can help if the problem is too little of a hormone
