Endocrine disorders are most commonly caused by problems related to the more than 50 different hormones that your body makes. Disorders can also be caused by injury, infection, or a tumor on an endocrine gland, which can alter hormone levels. The endocrine glands, which produce these hormones, may start producing too many or too few hormones. This imbalance can cause fatigue or weakness, or changes in weight, mood, blood glucose or cholesterol levels. These are the most common symptoms but each type of endocrine disorder has a unique set of symptoms. For example, diabetes can cause thirst, hunger, blurry vision, and excess urination. Thyroid disease can cause anxiety, irritability, diarrhea, and sleep problems.
When your endocrine system is functioning normally, you won’t notice it. But if problems arise with this complex system, you’ll need an endocrinologist to diagnose the problem and treat it.
Endocrinologists diagnose and treat endocrine disorders. As medical doctors who have specialized training in caring for the body’s complex endocrine system, they treat problems related to hormone production, hormonal glands, and related tissues. These hormonal problems can cause diabetes, metabolic disorders, thyroid diseases or cancer, osteoporosis, adrenal gland problems, pituitary disorders, or polycystic ovary syndrome.
