Definition

Endocrinology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorder of the endocrine system and its specific secretions called hormones. The endocrine system consists of several glands, in different parts of the body, that secrete hormones directly into the blood rather than into a duct system. Hormones have many different functions and modes of action; one hormone may have several effects on different target organs, and, conversely, one target organ may be affected by more than one hormone.
