Endocrinologists or Diabetes Doctors can diagnose and treat hormone problems and the complications that arise from them. Hormones regulate metabolism, respiration, growth, reproduction, sensory perception, and movement. Hormone imbalances are the underlying reason for a wide range of medical conditions.
Endocrinologists specialize in treating disorders of the endocrine system, the network of hormone-producing glands in your body. Endocrinologists are qualified to diagnose and treat conditions like diabetes, thyroid diseases, infertility, growth issues, metabolic disorders, osteoporosis, some cancers, and disorders in the hormone-producing adrenal glands and pituitary glands.
Disorders and diseases that originate elsewhere can also end up causing symptoms in your endocrine system. When problems in other systems or body parts impact your endocrine system, an endocrinologist will work in tandem with your primary care doctor or other specialists to come up with a treatment plan.
If you’re suffering from any of the following symptoms you need to have an online consultation with an endocrinologist right away-
According to the WHO, at least 422 million people worldwide have diabetes. The pancreas is the endocrine gland responsible for making the hormone insulin. Insulin helps your body’s cells take in glucose for energy. When you have diabetes, your pancreas doesn’t make enough insulin. As a result, glucose stays in your blood instead of helping your cells.
Your thyroid gland makes hormones that tell your body’s systems how fast work. When you have too much thyroid hormone(hyperthyroidism), your systems work in overdrive. When you have too little(hypothyroidism), your body becomes sluggish. Women are more likely than men to suffer from thyroid disorders.
Women with PCOS can have enlarged ovaries containing many small cysts. This interferes with regular menstruation and fertility. PCOS can also cause high levels of androgens (male hormones). Excess androgens can bring about hair growth, weight gain, and acne. Like other endocrine disorders, treatment involves balancing hormones.
Hypogonadism is the medical term for low testosterone. Men with low testosterone suffer from decreased sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, shrinking testes, and hair loss. They may also have less energy, depression, muscle weakness, and sleep problems. This is more common among older men.
Osteoporosis is thinning of the bones and loss of bone mass. Women are at higher risk than men. The risk increases with age, as estrogen levels decline. But other endocrine disorders can contribute to osteoporosis like high levels of thyroid hormone, parathyroid hormone, and cortisol. These conditions disrupt the normal balance of bone rebuilding and remodelling. In men, low testosterone levels can increase the likelihood of developing osteoporosis.
When glands that control reproduction don’t work properly, some children start puberty abnormally early, around eight in girls and nine in boys.
The adrenal glands secrete excess cortisol and make your face puffy and round resembling the moon (moon face).
