What Is Endocrinology?

Endocrinology is a specialty of medicine, although some might even say it is a sub-specialty of internal medicine, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to hormones. 

Endocrinology covers such human functions as the coordination of metabolism, respiration, reproduction, sensory perception, and movement.
