About Endocrine System

The endocrine system is a network of glands that produce and release hormones that help control
many important body functions. A malfunctioning of one or more of these glands can unbalance
the hormones in the body and lead to an endocrine disorder, or endocrine disease.

Some endocrine disorders are: diabetes, adrenal insufficiency, Cushing’s disease, gigantism,
hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, multiple endocrine neoplasia I and II, polycystic ovary
syndrome, precocious puberty. The disorders of the endocrine system can have symptoms that
look like psychological symptoms. Some of these symptoms are: depression, anxiety, fatigue,
mood swings, decreased concentration, and decreased memory. Therefore, it is very important
that patients must have physical exams before making psychological diagnosis.
