Major endocrine glands of the body include the thyroid gland, pituitary gland, adrenal glands, ovaries, testes, pineal gland and parathyroid glands. These glands (and the hormones they make) control many of our  essential body functions- including growth, energy use, reproduction, mood, sleep, digestion and much more.  Of course, sometimes things can go wrong with the endocrine system- certain issues such as thyroid disorders are very common.
