Endocrinology is a specialty of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to hormones. Therefore, Endocrinology focuses on the endocrine glands that secrete hormones. Endocrine diseases are classified into three broad groups: Endocrine gland hyposecretion, a condition in which the gland is not producing enough hormone leading to hormone deficiency. Endocrine gland hypersecretion, a condition in which the gland is overactive and produces excessive hormone leading to surplus levels of certain hormones.
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 specially trained physicians who diagnose and treat diseases related to the glands with an aim to restore the normal balance of hormones found in a patient’s body, thus treating the signs and symptoms.
