There are a number of glands in the Human Endocrine system and the glands secrete hormones that enter the bloodstream which transports them to different organs and tissues in every part of the body. Endocrinology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that involve hormones, which cover metabolism, respiration, growth, reproduction, sensory perception, and movement. One hormone may have several effects on different target organs, and conversely, one target organ may be affected by more than one hormone.
