Endocrine Disorders

Disorders of the endocrine system result in an imbalance of hormones which may be caused when the body has trouble keeping the right level of hormones in the bloodstream, or if the body does not clear them out of the bloodstream properly. Many genes that make up our bodies' endocrine pathways have been discovered and a variety of endocrine disorders caused by changes in these genes are now fairly well understood in terms of their molecular basis and mode of inheritance.

Genetic testing available through the Northwell Health Genomics Alliance can assist practitioners with diagnosing the causes of endocrine disorders. Commonly order tests are listed below:
