HEALTHY HORMONAL BALANCE
Medithics - Endocrinology Department
Endocrinology is the branch of medicine that deals with hormone-related issues. An endocrinologist is one who diagnoses and treats hormonal problems and the endocrine glands.
Endocrinologists are doctors who specialize in glands and the hormones they make. Metabolism, respiration, growth, reproduction, sensory perception, and movement are all key functional areas which are controlled by hormones.
Endocrine glands are glands of the endocrine system that secrete their hormones, directly into the blood rather than through a duct. The major glands of the endocrine system include the pineal gland, pituitary gland, pancreas, ovaries, testes, thyroid gland, parathyroid gland, hypothalamus and adrenal glands.
The endocrine system is a network of glands in your body that make the hormones that help cells communicate.
Urine and blood tests, as well as imaging technology and other tools, may be used to measure the levels of various hormones in the patient's body by an endocrinologists.Imbalances of certain hormones increase the risk for anxiety and may induce anxiety symptoms.
