Endocrine conditions are medical conditions that occur when the endocrine system does not function correctly. The endocrine system is the system in the body which produces hormones to provide an internal communication system between cells located in distant parts of the body.Endocrine conditions can be due to three main causes: 1) Underproduction of a certain hormone; 2) Overproduction of a certain hormone; 3) A malfunction in the production line of a hormone or in its ability to function correctly.There are many factors which cause the endocrine system to stop working properly. Some endocrine conditions are due to a benign growth in the affected gland or when the cells in that gland stop functioning properly, while others are caused by genetic factors.
