The endocrine system is a complex group of glands that produce hormones that control activities in your body. Different hormones control functions including:
- Reproduction and fertility
- Metabolism (food burning and waste elimination)
- Growth and development

Reproduction & Infertility Care
If you’re trying to have a baby but you’re not getting pregnant, you may wonder if you have a fertility issue. It’s possible; in fact, about one in 10 American couples experience infertility. At Parkland Medical Center, we work with you to make safe pregnancies and parenthood a reality.
People with thyroid conditions often have low energy levels, as well as issues with muscle strength, emotions, weight control and body temperature. Our specialists work with you to regulate an overactive thyroid or underactive thyroid and restore your energy and health to optimal levels.
Metabolic & Obesity Care
We treat patients who are overweight or obese—conditions sometimes caused by metabolic and hormonal problems. We work to identify hormonal imbalances that may affect your weight gain and provide an effective plan for improved health.
