Endocrine Disorders

The endocrine system balances the hormones in the bloodstream. If your body has too much or too little of a certain hormone, the feedback system signals the proper gland or glands to correct the problem. A hormone imbalance may occur if this system has trouble keeping the right level of hormones in the bloodstream, or if your body doesn't clear them out of the bloodstream properly.

Endocrine disorders are typically categorised into two types:

Endocrine disease that results when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone, called a hormone imbalance.

Endocrine disease due to the development of lesions (such as nodules or tumours) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect hormone levels

Increased or decreased levels of endocrine hormone may be caused by

A problem with the endocrine feedback system Disease

  • Failure of a gland to stimulate another gland to release hormones (for example, a problem with the hypothalamus can disrupt hormone production in the pituitary gland)
  • A genetic disorder, such as multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) or congenital hypothyroidism Infection
  • Injury to an endocrine gland
  • Tumor of an endocrine gland
