Endocrinology Overview

Endocrinology is a subspecialty of internal medicine that studies hormones and the glands that produce them – including the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenals, ovaries and testes, and the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. Hattiesburg Clinic’s endocrinologists consult in cases of severe diabetes, lipid, or thyroid disorders; osteoporosis; and other situations where a hormonal disorder is suspected.
