Hormones are important for controlling many body systems. If hormone levels get out of balance, the body can have trouble functioning.
Hormone levels can be affected by a variety of factors. This includes some lifestyle behaviours, environmental exposures, genetics, health conditions and some medications. In some cases, this can lead to endocrine diseases and conditions.
The endocrine disease pages provide information about some endocrine conditions.
They describe each disease, including symptoms and tests your doctor may use for diagnosis. They also describe options for treatment and advice about when to see your doctor. Answers to some frequently asked questions are also included.
Each condition also provides links to additional sources of expert advice, information and resources.
