Endocrinology is the medical specialty practiced by doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the endocrine glands, which produce and regulate hormones. Endocrinologists may treat diseases such as diabetes or low thyroid. Some may have a focus of practice such as weight loss or hormonal problems in children. Before you consult with an endocrinologist, it is good to know if he has a focus of practice, and if he is certified by the Sociedade Brasileira de Endocrinologia e Metabologia, which is the official organization recognized by the Associação Médica Brasiliera.
