Endocrine disorders are a collection of conditions resulting from problems with a part of the endocrine system. This system uses glands throughout the body to produce and release hormones, which can affect a number of bodily processes. Endocrine disorders can be challenging to identify due to the range of symptoms they cause and their similarity to other conditions. However, people who are experiencing symptoms should contact a doctor, as the conditions typically require treatment.
