Endocrinology is a particular stream of medical science that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to hormones. Endocrinology pertains to the most crucial functions of human life such as respiration, metabolism, reproduction, sensory perception, and movement.
An endocrinologist is a doctor who is specialised and trained specifically in the observation, diagnosis and treatment of ailments related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system is the system of different glands that secrete hormones directly into the circulatory system and then carried towards distant target organs. The major endocrine glands include the pineal gland, pituitary gland, pancreas, ovaries, testes, thyroid gland, parathyroid gland, hypothalamus, gastrointestinal tract and adrenal glands.
Hormones are nothing but chemicals that are produced by the body in different organs, which release in small amounts into the blood system. Which later on flows to the particular body part to perform its function. Problems in the endocrine system could result in some complications in the thyroid, metabolism, diabetes related ailments, and also hypertension and infertility.
The role of an endocrinologist in today’s world has also assumed larger importance thanks to the rising cases of diabetes, especially in urban spaces. An endocrinologist is a crucial part of diabetes treatment, as he/she is trained to deal with issues relating to diabetes. In fact, for diabetes patients, endocrinologists play a crucial role in prognosis, diagnosis, and rehabilitation. Endocrinologists play a vital role in prognosis since they alert both the patient and the attending doctors about the particular case, and the various complications associated with it.
