Expertise that restores hormonal balance

Endocrinology is a field of medicine that deals with diseases of the endocrine system and hormones.

An endocrinologist is a physician specialist in internal medicine, a subspecialist in endocrinology. As a rule, it diagnoses and treats hormone problems and complications arising from these problems.

The endocrinologist is engaged in the treatment of: diabetes, sterility, thyroid disease, menopause, osteoporosis, low growth, metabolic disorders, some cancers.

What are hormones?  

Humans have more than 50 different hormones that affect almost all functions of the body.

Hormones regulate metabolism, growth, reproduction, breathing, sensory perception, movement. When hormones are disrupted, many of the body's functions can be disrupted.

Endocrinology studies hormones, glands and tissues that produce hormones.

The imbalance of hormones affects normal functioning and life. Therefore, it is necessary to contact an endocrinologist when the first symptoms appear that indicate a disruption of the work of hormones.

Hormonal imbalances can be genetic, but it can also occur under the influence of external factors.

If you have inexplicably gained or lost weight quickly, wake up thirsty, have stomach ache, urinate frequently, you need to urgently consult an endocrinologist.

What is the endocrine system?

The human endocrine system consists of glands that release hormones to control various functions of the body.

When hormones leave the glands, they enter the bloodstream and are transferred to organs and tissues.

Glands that belong to the endocrine system:

  • adrenal gland
  • hypothalamus
  • ovaries and testicles
  • pancreas
  • parathyroid glands
  • Pineal gland (pineal gland)
  • pituitary gland
  • thymus (thoracic gland)
  • thyroid gland

When should I contact an endocrinologist?

If you have any of the following symptoms, you should consult an endocrinologist:

  • sudden mood swings;
  • Perspiration;
  • uncontrolled thirst or hunger;
  • frequent urination;
  • absence of menstruation;
  • painful and abundant menstruation;
  • skin problems;
  • high blood pressure;
  • Fatigue;
  • growth disorder;

What does an examination with an endocrinologist look like?

Each endocrinological examination begins with a conversation with the patient.

During the first examination, the endocrinologist will ask a series of questions that will serve him to ask the best medical history.

The endocrinologist will ask about:

  • current therapy (if you are taking it)
  • Family history of hormonal problems
  • other medical conditions, including allergies, eating habits , exercise...
  • Symptoms

Take with you all the medical records that are relevant and can be useful (blood and urine tests, done just before the examination).

The doctor will check blood pressure and heart rate, examine the skin, hair, teeth and mouth.

Based on everything he notices, the endocrinologist will suggest further diagnostics (additional analyzes, ultrasound of the thyroid gland or OGTT...) and treatment.
