Endocrinology is the branch of medicine that relates to the endocrine system, the system responsible for controlling our hormones. These hormones are in charge of numerous functions in the body, such as growth and development, metabolism, sexual function, reproduction, and mood.

Endocrinologists are specialists who diagnose disorders related to the major glands of the endocrine system, including the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, pineal gland, parathyroid glands, thyroid, thymus, adrenal glands, kidneys, pancreas, ovaries, and testes.

Endocrine conditions can be complex, with symptoms that are difficult to diagnose. At Sentinel Health Partners in Kershaw County, South Carolina, our endocrinologist, Dr. John Schenck, is an expert at diagnosing and treating all types of endocrine disorders.
