The endocrine system consists of glands that secrete different types of hormones, which help regulate bodily metabolic activity. It controls mood, growth, development, metabolism, reproductive processes, and function. When the endocrine system is disrupted in some way, it may result in a hormone imbalance. The most common endocrine disease is diabetes. Others include thyroid disease, adrenal disorders such as Cushing’s disease, pituitary gland disorders, and sex hormone disorders such as turner syndrome or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
