A blog about the different types of symptoms for each disorder, how to identify them and what to do if you are experiencing them.
The endocrine system is made up of a set of glands which have the ability to secrete hormones into the bloodstream and can be targeted to specific body organs. The endocrine system is vital to homeostasis, or balance, of the body as many of the hormones it produces help regulate body temperature, water and nutrient balances, breakdown of food and maintain moods. Diseases affecting the endocrine system can be caused by viruses, genetic or environmental conditions. This article will provide a brief overview of the diseases affecting the endocrine system, their associated complications, and how to manage these diseases.
The endocrine system is responsible for producing hormones that regulate the functioning of many other systems in the body. When the endocrine system is not functioning properly it can lead to a number of endocrine disorders. Endocrine glands are hormone-producing glands that secrete hormones directly into the bloodstream. Hormones travel through the bloodstream to target organs where they regulate normal body functions. Endocrine disorders are grouped into either primary or secondary conditions. Primary endocrine disorders are caused by problems with the structure or function of specific endocrine glands. Secondary endocrine disorders are caused by a problem outside of the endocrine system that causes improper functioning of the endocrine glands.
Diabetes is one of the most common endocrine disorders an individual can acquire either hereditary or from what we consume on a daily basis. With that in mind, our endocrinologist aims to regulate the disease by proper management and treatment.
Healthy blood sugar levels are the key to avoiding long-term and short-term complications of diabetes. The endocrinologist may suggest lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy weight. Assessments and daily tests may also be required to monitor the effectiveness of the treatment over time.
