What is Endocrinology

Endocrinology is a branch of biology and medicine that deals with the endocrine system, its unique links known as diseases, and hormones. It is also associated with the combination, multiplication, enlargement, and differentiation of developmental phenomena, psychological or behavioral activities of metabolism, growth, and development, tissue processing, sleep, digestion, respiration, excretion, mood, stress, lactation, movement, reproduction. . and a feeling of arousal caused by hormones. Deuteronomy includes endocrinology and comparative endocrinology.
The endocrine system consists of several glands that secrete hormones directly into the bloodstream, not into the canal system. The endocrine glands are therefore considered to be non-dairy glands. Hormones have different functions and actions; Hormones can have different effects on different organs, on the contrary, more than one hormone can affect the target organ.
Endocrinology is the study of the endocrine system in the human body. This is a system of glands that secrete hormones. Hormones are chemicals that affect the action of various organ systems in the body. For example, it contains thyroid hormone, growth hormone, and insulin. The endocrine system includes several response mechanisms, so it will often monitor the movement or release of another hormone (like thyroid-stimulating hormone) and another second hormone (like thyroid hormone). If the secondary hormone is too high, it can retain homeostasis and respond negatively to the main hormone
Griffin and Ojeda identify three different classes of hormones depending on their chemical composition
Diseases, treatments
Endocrine diseases are caused when hormone levels are too high or too low, or when the body does not react to hormones the way it is supposed to.
The most common endocrine disease in the U.S. is diabetes. However, other conditions treated within endocrinology include osteoporosis, menopause, obesity, short stature, thyroid disease, hypertension, and infertility.
Treatments typically involve controlling the amount of hormone the body produces, and, in cases of hormone deficiency, the use of hormone supplements.
Becoming an endocrinologist
After medical school, several years of internship and residency in the fields of pediatrics or obstetrics and gynecology, besides specific instruction about hormone diseases, are required before a clinician can become an endocrinologist.
Many professional organizations are dedicated to endocrinology, largely because the field encompasses a number of the body’s systems and functions.
Endocrinology is the study of medicine that relates to the, which is the system that controls Endocrinologists are specially trained physicians who diagnose diseases related to the glands. Because these doctors specialize in these conditions, which can be complex and have
hard-to-spot symptoms, an endocrinologist is your best advocate when dealing with hormonal issues.
Most patients begin their journey to the endocrinologist with a trip to their primary care provider or family doctor. This doctor will run a series of tests to see what could be the potential problem the patient is facing. If a problem with the hormones is suspected, the primary care doctor will provide a referral. The endocrinologist's goal is to restore hormonal balance in the body.
