Endocrinology is a branch of internal medicine dealing with the endocrine system, its diseases and hormones.
Diabetes Mellitus is the most common endocrine disorder affecting our population. An endocrinologist can diagnose and treat hormone problems and the complications that arise from them.
The human endocrine system consists of a number of glands releasing hormones that affect the actions of different organ systems in the body.
Hormones involve the integration of physiological, psychological or behavioural activities of metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sleep and reproduction among others.
Hormone imbalances are the underlying reason for a wide range of medical conditions like:
- Diabetes Mellitus
- Thyroid disorders
- Metabolic disorders
- Adrenal disorders
- Reproductive issues and more.
