Endocrinology

Endocrinology is the area of medicine that relates to the endocrine system, the system that controls hormones. The endocrine system is a series of glands that produce and secrete hormones that the body uses for a wide range of functions. These control many different bodily functions, including:

  • Respiration
  • Metabolism
  • Reproduction
  • Sensory perception
  • Movement
  • Sexual development
  • Growth

When the glands do not produce the right amount of hormones, diseases develop that can affect many aspects of life. Glands may become over active or underactive. Occasionally lumps may be found in these glands which may need Ultrasound or other types of scans to help determine whether they are benign or malignant.

Dr Mark Cohen is our Endocrinology specialist at Chase Lodge and he will advise on investigations and management of any endocrine problems. We can arrange any specialist diagnostic tests needed.
