Endocrinology Treatment in Hyderabad
Endocrinology is a branch of medicine that is concerned with hormone-related diseases. The endocrine system is a network of glands that are responsible for secreting hormones directly into the bloodstream to different tissues in the body. Hormones are chemical messengers formed by the body. These endocrine hormones are secreted within the tissue and enter the bloodstream through capillaries.
The important glands in the endocrine system include – thyroid, pituitary, adrenal, ovaries, testes and pancreas. The hormones secreted by endocrine glands are used by the body to control many functions such as Respiration, Metabolism, Reproduction, Sensory perception, Movement, Sexual development and growth.

It can cause weight gain or loss based on hormonal imbalance and the impact on energy levels. The two types of thyroid conditions are as mentioned below:

The two types of pituitary tumors – secretory tumor that produces an excess amount of pituitary hormones whereas non-secretory tumor does not.
