Most often your primary care physician will refer you to an Endocrinologist. However you may see an endocrinologist if you feel you have hormone disorders of the endocrine glands.

What are the various endocrine glands and their roles?

The Various endocrine glands are:

Pituitary (the master gland): It directs the other glands to secrete their hormones in order. It directly secretes the GROWTH HORMONE (which is responsible for growth during childhood) and PROLACTIN which is important for milk secretion. It secretes FSH and LH which maintain the secretion of the sex glands (OVARIES and TESTES) and is important for fertility. It also secretes TSH which directs the thyroid to secrete to hormones correctly.
