About endocrine diseases
About endocrine diseases

Your endocrine system is made up of majorly eight glands including the thyroid and parathyroid gland, pituitary gland, adrenal gland, hypothalamus, pineal body, thymus, ovaries and pancreas. These glands release certain hormones that help regulate your growth, metabolism, sexual function and mood.

An endocrine disease or disorder occurs when your body does not respond to these released hormones in the way it is expected to. These diseases can be caused as a result of high or low levels of hormones.

Endocrine disease cause

The primary cause of the endocrine disease is hormonal imbalance in your body. Besides this, endocrine diseases can also be caused due to the development of tumours in any location or gland of the endocrine system.

Types of endocrine diseases

Common types of endocrine diseases include:

  • Diabetes
  • Cushing’s disease
  • Adrenal insufficiency
  • Growth hormone problems
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
Endocrine disease treatment

Your treatment protocol will largely depend on the specific gland affected by your disease. Your doctor may order certain tests such as blood and urine tests to check your hormonal levels and determine your condition. Most endocrine diseases can be effectively treated through medicines or hormone therapy.
