Endocrinology is the medical specialty that focuses on the endocrine system—the collection of hormone-producing glands that regulate your body in many ways. Your metabolism, reproductive system and overall growth and development, for example, depend on endocrine glands to produce the right amount of hormones to keep your bodily systems functioning properly.

When you have a hormone-related condition such as diabetes, you can trust the endocrinologists at Edward-Elmhurst Health to help you get things back in balance.
