Many conditions, such as type 2 diabetes mellitus, thyroid disorders including goiter, infertility, digestion disorders, dwarfism and gigantic disorders are treated by endocrinologists.
Endocrinology is associated with the endocrine system, which control hormones. Examples of hormones include pituitary hormones (oestrogen, progesterone, growth hormone), thyroid hormones, insulin and glucagon. An endocrine specialist is also known as a diabetes specialist or thyroid specialist.
An endocrinologist diagnoses and treats people suffering from imbalances in hormones and their effects. The overall goal of an endocrinologist is to restore the hormonal imbalance to restore the normal physiological functioning of the body.
Conditions covered by an endocrine clinic include diabetes (due to imbalance of insulin or glucagon), gastroenterology, excessive weight gain (Cushing’s syndrome), goiter (thyroid disorders), cholesterol disorders and infertility. Most of these conditions require rigorous endocrinologic tests and examinations and a good set of professional skills and experience. Diabetes and gastroenterological conditions are examples of chronic conditions requiring the expertise of endocrinologists especially due to the fact that they are chronic conditions.
