The endocrine system helps maintain control of vital life functions, including reproduction, growth, fluid balance, breathing, weight control and energy levels. These vital functions can be compromised by endocrine system disorders and diseases that affect the organs and glands that are responsible for the production, storage and secretion of hormones in the body. Common endocrine system diseases include growth disorders, diabetes, thyroid disorders, osteoporosis, and many other disorders.
These disorders vary in the range of symptoms that may occur. Sometimes these disorders may have no noticeable symptoms, while others have more severe widespread symptoms that affect various parts of the body.
Our endocrinology experts at Albany Medical Center understand and recognize that the needs of each patient will vary. We work closely with our patients to manage endocrine disorders and create self-care plans that work to unique individual needs in order to provide the best possible care.
