The human body consists of several organs and other chemical compounds that help all organs and the body to function properly and seamlessly. Similarly, Hormones are equally important in maintaining a proportionate balance in the body and are essential for our everyday survival. They control our temperature, sleep, mood, stress, growth, and much more. Endocrinology is the study of these hormones.
Hormones influence or control a wide range of physiological activities, such as growth, development, puberty, level of alertness, sugar regulation, appetite, bone growth, etc. One also might find that the problems with hormones and the way hormones work contribute to some of the major diseases of mankind; for example, diabetes, thyroid conditions, pituitary conditions, sexual problems, neurological problems, obesity, bone problems, cancer, etc.
The endocrine system’s glands and organs release hormones that regulate a number of vital functions of the body. These glands include the hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroids, adrenals, pancreas, testes, and ovaries.
There are up to 40 different hormones circulating in the blood. Once released into the bloodstream, a hormone travels throughout the body until it reaches its specific destination(s) to perform its function. These destinations, called targets, can be located either on other endocrine glands or on other organs and tissues in the body. When a hormone reaches its target, it tells that part of your body what work to do, when to do it, and for how long. Hormones are often referred to as the “messengers” because they help different parts of the body communicate. Overall, they are involved in many different processes in the body, including:
- Blood sugar control
- Growth and development
- Metabolism (the process of getting and maintaining energy in the body)
- Regulation of heart rate and blood pressure
- Sexual development and function
What is the importance of Endocrinology Videos?
An endocrinologist is a doctor that treats diseases related to problems with hormones. Hormones are secreted by endocrine glands, such as the pituitary, thyroid, or adrenal glands. Not all glands are classified as endocrine glands; for example, sweat glands or lymph glands are not endocrine glands.
It is often seen that patients collect information about their issues through the internet which results in lethal outcomes since the information has no basis whatsoever. Providing health, disease, or any medical treatment-related information is the doctor’s responsibility to ensure that the patient understands what the procedure is for and the patient agrees to it. The hindrance of providing clear information can easily be solved via high-quality Videos and Animations which acts as a common bridge between a doctor and their patients. It is proven that visuals are a more efficient way to convey health or disease-related information to a practitioner to their patients.
While consultation, it is often seen that the practitioner and the patient tend to be not on the same page, meaning the information that the practitioner provides is often misunderstood by the patients which creates a knowledge barrier between the both.
Good communication with a practitioner makes it more understandable for patients to benefit from their treatment and helps to ensure the best-suited treatment for them which can be done by consulting via Endocrinology videos.
There are several types of endocrine disorders that can be summarized as under:
- Adrenal insufficiency – The adrenal gland releases too little of the hormone cortisol and sometimes, aldosterone. Symptoms include fatigue, stomach upset, dehydration, and skin changes. Addison’s disease is a type of adrenal insufficiency.
- Cushing’s disease – Overproduction of a pituitary gland hormone leads to an overactive adrenal gland. A similar condition called Cushing’s syndrome may occur in people, particularly children, who take high doses of corticosteroid medications.
- Hyperthyroidism – The thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone, leading to weight loss, fast heart rate, sweating, and nervousness. The most common cause of an overactive thyroid is an autoimmune disorder called Grave’s disease.
- Hypothyroidism – The thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone, leading to fatigue, constipation, dry skin, and depression. The underactive gland can cause slowed development in children. Some types of hypothyroidism are present at birth.
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) – Overproduction of androgens interfere with the development of eggs and their release from the female ovaries. PCOS is a leading cause of infertility.
