WHAT IS ENDOCRINE SYSTEM?


The endocrine system is a system consisting of the endocrine glands. Endocrine glands are the organs that allow the formation of hormones. Endocrine organs; hypothalamus, pituitary, pineal, thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, thymus, adrenal gland (shell-Cortex and centre-medulla), pancreas, gonads, ovaries, testicles are.  

Endocrinology is a branch of science studying molecules called hormones providing communication between the tissues released from endocrine glands and the diseases of that are connected to these. All tissues and organs that make up the hormones are called "endocrine system”.  Endocrinologist is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of metabolic diseases and diseases that affect glands and hormones, namely, endocrine system. 
  
In our body through hormones, endocrine system checks vital processes such as 
 
Growth and development
Energy regulation (storage and mobilization)
Internal balance (fluid and electrolyte balance)
Reproduction (sexual life, 
 
Pregnancy, lactation) Hormones also control our responses we give to our environment and also helps provide energy and nutrients required for the functions of our body. Examples of hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, ovaries, (female ovaries, testicles in males), adrenal gland, adipose tissue, endothelium (cells that line the inner wall of the vessel) can be mentioned for secretory glands that make up the endocrine system.
