Endocrinology

Endocrinology is the study of endocrine system, its diseases, and its specific secretions known as hormones. Examples of hormones include thyroid hormone, growth hormone, and insulin. These hormones influences major body functions, including the body's ability to change calories into energy, also regulate processes, such as appetite, breathing, fluid balance, feminization, and weight control.  The endocrine system also influences heart beats, bones and tissues growth. It plays a vital role in whether or not you develop diabetes, thyroid disease, growth disorders, sexual dysfunction, and a host of other hormone-related disorders.

Endocrinology diseases may relate to too much or too little secretion of a hormone, too much or too little action of a hormone, or problems with receiving the hormone. Common endocrine disorders include diabetes mellitus, Addison’s disease, Cushing’s syndrome, Graves’ disease, acromegaly, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, hypothyroidism, and hyperthyroidism. These disorders often have widespread symptoms, affect multiple parts of the body, and can range in severity from mild to very severe. Treatments often relays on adjusting hormone balance using synthetic hormones. Untreated endocrine disorders can have widespread complications throughout the body.
