Endocrinologists study the pancreas, which is a major part of the endocrinal system and also study insulin-related problems. Apart from diagnosing hormonal complications, endocrinologists are responsible in charting the recovery of their patients and also providing respite in terms of restoring the hormonal balance in the body.
