Endocrine disorders can be classified into two categories. One is the disease that results when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone, called a hormone imbalance; and the other is due to the development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect hormone levels.
The endocrine system is a network of glands that produce and release hormones that help control many important body functions, including the bodys ability to change calories into energy that powers cells and organs. The endocrine system influences how your heart beats, how your bones and tissues grow, even your ability to make a baby. It plays a vital role in whether or not you develop diabetes, thyroid disease, growth disorders, sexual dysfunction, and a host of other hormone related disorders.
