What is an Endocrinologist?

An endocrinologist diagnoses and treats hormone-related problems and diseases. Hormone imbalances account for a wide range of medical conditions, including issues with metabolism, respiration, growth, reproduction, sensory perception and movement. The study of endocrinology focuses on both hormones and the glands and tissues that produce them.

Symptoms and Treatments of Endocrine Disorders?

Endocrinologists treat the following conditions: diabetes, osteoporosis, menopause, metabolic disorders, thyroid diseases, excessive or insufficient production of hormones, some cancers, infertility and growth issues. The treatment plan depends on which underlying condition the patient has. Symptoms vary widely and depend on which specific glands are involved, but most people complain of fatigue and weakness. The endocrinologist might ask for the patient to create a list of symptoms, including some that may seem unrelated or unnecessary due to the fact that hormone levels affect so many different systems in the body that even a slight change can affect a part of the body far from the glands themselves.
