An endocrinologist’s role is to diagnose and treat problems in the endocrine system including recognising and treating:-
- Hormone imbalances
- Damage to the endocrine glands
- Diseases that impact the endocrine system
- Environmental factors that may be effecting hormone balance
Much of the treatment deployed by an endocrinologist will form the basis for ongoing research with the goal of improving the treatment of hormone imbalances and development of new drugs.
