Endocrinology is the study of the endocrine glands. These include, for example, the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal and pituitary gland and the pancreas. Together with a large number of other hormone-producing cells, e.g. of the gastrointestinal tract and fatty tissue, they regulate and control various body functions by producing and secreting hormones.
Endocrinologists deal not only with relatively rare hormonal diseases, but also with more common conditions including osteoporosis, diabetes, goiter, and enlarged thyroid glands. Hormonal disorders are associated with disorders related to various groups - rheumatologic, pediatric, gynecologic, orthopedic, etc. Therefore, endocrinology is a very broad field of medicine, and the endocrinologist is usually a specialist in many medical branches.
He often acts as a "coordinator" who must know and understand all the interactions and connections, combining the efforts of various specialists.
The fact that a health issue has hormonal causes is not always recognized at first glance, so patients do not receive the appropriate treatment. In such cases, the endocrinologist becomes the last resort in a long chain of doctor appointments, the "last hope" in the patient’s lengthy ordeal.
