What is endocrinology?

Endocrinology is the branch of the science of medicine that deals with the glands or organs that secrete hormones - substances that travel the bloodstream and act as signals on other tissues.  Examples of endocrine glands are the thyroid, the pituitary, the adrenals and the pancreas.
