They work to correct problems stemming from over and under production of hormones or the body's inability to properly produce hormones.

Education and Training: An endocrinologist must have completed 4 years of medical school, a 3 to 4 year residency or internship in internal medicine, and another 2 to 3 years in the endocrinology field. Once they have taken and passed a state exam, they can be a certified endocrinologist.
