Strong Points: Lots of information, online patient support groups
Weak Points: Cluttered with advertisements

To find out more about these—as well as many other—endocrine disorders, click over to Endocrine Web. Endocrine Web is an great online resource for endocrinology. It not only presents basic educational information about the endocrine system, it also provides pertinent information for patients with endocrine disorders. For example, site visitors can search for clinical trials related to specific endocrine disorders, and they can also discuss a particular condition with the community via online support groups. The website also provides a number of patients’ guides on topics such as insulin, thyroid cancer, and treating high cholesterol and diabetes. The website is a bit busy with advertisements, but it is nicely organized and contains a great deal of valuable information.
