Background:

Endocrine disorders involve changes to glands that produce hormones. Hormones are released by these glands into the blood so they can direct the function of other tissues in the body. Researchers want to study people who may have endocrine disorders. They want to learn more about the conditions that affect endocrine glands.

Objective:

To study adults with a variety of endocrine disorders for research and physician education.

Eligibility:

Adults ages 18 and older who have an endocrine or metabolic-related disorder

Healthy volunteers 18 and older

Design:

Participants will be screened with a review of their medical records.

Participants will have a physical exam and medical history.

The length of the study and the schedule will vary by participant. Tests may include:

Blood and urine tests

Stool and saliva samples

Imaging studies: Participants will lie on a table while a machine takes pictures of the body. They may be injected with a substance to make their organs more visible in the pictures.

Tests of endocrine tissue function

Consultation with other specialists

Sleep study

Medical photographs

Participants may be treated for their endocrine disorder. This could include:

Surgery. If tissue is removed during surgery, it may be studied.

Radiation

Medicine

Participants may have genetic testing. This will be done with a small amount of blood, cells from a cheek swab, or saliva.

Eligibility

INCLUSION CRITERIA:

-Age 18 years or greater.

-The possible disorder of the patient subjects must complement the case-mix in the IETP, as determined by the Principal Investigator. A log will be used to assure that the training needs of the teaching protocols are being met.

EXCLUSION CRITIERIA:

1. Unstable patients and patients with severe organ failure, or those with a condition or medical treatment that may affect/limit the endocrine work-up and exhaust Clinical Center, IETP resources will be excluded if appropriate. Decisions will be made on a case by case basis by the investigators. For example, there is a weight limit for the interventional radiology table used for venous

sampling.

2. Inability of a subject to adhere to a proposed schedule of visits.

3. Individuals must be able to provide informed consent.
