Endocrinology / diabetology
Endocrinology and diabetology make up the branch of medicine that deals with diseases that affect the hormone-producing glands. This includes research, diagnosis and therapy relating to diabetes mellitus. Endocrinologists also focus on hormonally regulated metabolism and the thyroid gland.
For example, endocrinologists treat diseases affecting the pituitary gland (hypophysis), the bones (e.g. osteoporosis) and adrenal glands, as well as sex hormone (oestrogen, testosterone) and metabolic disorders.
