Expert Endocrinology Treatment. Complete Convenience.

The field of endocrinology is a highly specialized discipline in the medical world. An endocrinologist can provide expert consultation and treatment on issues related to the endocrine system of the body. Through the endocrine hormones they secrete and release into the bloodstream, endocrine glands are responsible for regulating critical functions such as body temperature, metabolic functions, and even unique bio-mechanisms like your day-night cycles. Since endocrine hormones have multifold functions, there exist multiple avenues of endocrinology, each specializing in a particular avenue that the hormones influence. For instance, diabetes doctors also specialize in treating the hormone-related aspects of diabetes that can cause repercussions, such as insulin resistance and type 1 diabetes treatment. Among the 50-odd hormones the human body generates, the endocrine network is responsible for a handful of core components in regulating body function. The major endocrine glands include:

  • Pancreas (Abdomen)
  • Thyroid and parathyroid (neck region)
  • Gonads (testes and ovary)
  • Pituitary gland (base of your brain)
  • Adrenal glands (above your kidneys)

Most endocrinology issues arise from a hormonal imbalance in the body. Even a minimal shift in hormone levels can cause a ripple effect in the body, affecting various systems. The inverse is also true in some cases, where instances such as diabetes treatment can cause hormonal imbalances due to medication. Consulting an endocrinologist is the best course of action in case of such symptoms.

In a broad sense, endocrinology treatments can be classified into three types:

  • Hypo-secretion: When an endocrine gland secretes hormones in insufficient quantities, it can lead to adverse effects. Diabetes doctors often treat cases of insulin deficiency as part of this branch.
  • Over-secretion: The excess production of hormones can also cause issues in the body. Hyperthyroidism and hyperprolactinemia are common examples of this condition.
  • Tumors: All endocrine glands are susceptible to cancer and tumors. Endocrinologists can assist with early diagnosis of these tumors for effective treatment.

Endocrinology can also be categorized based on the specific medical ailments it addresses. This is especially useful when viewing the field from the perspective of probable causes, as it can dictate the ideal treatment approach from the first consultation.

  • Pediatric endocrinology: This branch of endocrinology deals with the specific issues faced by young children and the hormonal issues they face.
  • Diabetes-related treatment: Since diabetes is a condition that majorly impacts metabolism, endocrinologists can assist in alleviating the symptoms of this imbalance through dedicated Type 2 diabetes treatment.
  • Endocrine oncology: These endocrinologists specialize in treating tumors and cancer-related ailments in the endocrine system.

The hormonal imbalance can also manifest in different intensities depending on the individual’s physiological patterns, such as the day/night cycle and metabolism.
