Endocrine disorders are diagnosed by taking a detailed history from patients, examining them and performing investigations including blood tests and in some cases radiological imaging.

The management of an endocrine disorder by an endocrinologist depends on the disorder diagnosed.  Treatment may include medication in disorders such as hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and Addison's disease.  Surgery may be required in disorders such as Cushing's disease, acromegaly, etc.
