The Care of Hormone-Related Disease
Endocrinology is a medical specialty that focuses on diseases related to hormones and the endocrine system. The endocrine system consists of the thyroid, pancreas, pituitary, adrenal, and other hormone-secreting glands and tissues.
Hormones play a significant role in our health and functioning. There are many different kinds of hormones, each serving its own unique purpose. They can affect:
- Sensory perception
- Sexual development
- Sleep patterns.
A problem anywhere in the endocrine system can potentially wreak havoc on your health and quality of life. For example, the thyroid's hormone production alone influences the function of many of the body's most important organs, including the heart, brain, liver, kidneys, and skin. For symptoms or disorders related to the endocrine glands or the functions they impact, you may need to consult an endocrinologist. Trios Endocrinology can help.
