Endocrinology is a field of medicine that deals with the function of the endocrine glands (glands with internal secretion) and their hormones in the body. It is a significant branch of internal medicine because some endocrine diseases are very widespread. Diabetology is the science of diabetes, and the consequences caused by complications of diabetes.

The increasing exposure to stress and the modern, fast-paced lifestyle, as well as excessive intake and reduced energy consumption, cause increasingly frequent diseases of the endocrine system, the most common of which are diabetes and thyroid diseases. Endocrine-metabolic disorders/diseases ruin the quality of life and shorten life expectancy.

The endocrine system (the system of glands that secrete hormones) is extremely complex, there is mutual communication between the glands, so the clinical picture of diseases of the individual gland can be very diverse. Disruption of the function of the endocrine gland can not be viewed in isolation, and to assess the condition or severity of the disease it is extremely important to observe the system as a whole. The normal function of the endocrine system is important for growth and development, sexual function, fertility and pregnancy…

Some endocrinology diseases, such as diabetes, thyroid disease, obesity and osteoporosis are very common in the general population, while diseases of the adrenal glands and pituitary gland are relatively rare. Definitely it would be a good idea to see an endocrinologist if you experience symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, weight gain, weight loss, thirst, heat or cold intolerance, heart rhythm disorders, sexual disorders, etc.
