The diagnosis and treatment of disorders connected to hormones fall under the umbrella of the medical speciality known as endocrinology. Therefore, the endocrine glands that release hormones are the main focus of endocrinology. There are three major categories into which endocrine illnesses fall: Endocrine gland hypersecretion causes a hormone shortage because the gland does not produce enough hormone. Endocrine gland hypersecretion is a disorder where the gland is overactive and secretes too much hormone, causing an excess of some hormones in the body.
Tumours of endocrine glands can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous) Hormonal imbalances can lead to conditions like Diabetes, Metabolic Disorders of Growth and Puberty, Osteoporosis, Thyroid diseases like Hyperthyroidism or Hypothyroidism, Difficult to Treat Hypertension, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), Hirsutism, Menopause, Hyperlipidaemia, Hypoglycaemia amongst many others.
Endocrinologists are particularly trained physicians who diagnose and treat glandular problems with the goal of restoring the normal balance of hormones found in a patient's body, thus treating the signs and symptoms.
