Treatment of endocrine diseases abroad

Endocrinology is a medical field that studies and treats hormonal diseases and related complications.

 

Endocrine glands produce chemicals called hormones. These hormones enter the bloodstream and act by stimulating other organs in the body. The main endocrine glands are the thyroid gland, pancreas, parathyroid gland, adrenal glands, gonads and pituitary gland. Hormones from these glands regulate growth, metabolism, blood pressure, reproduction, and many other necessary functions.

An endocrine disease that occurs when the gland produces too much or too little endocrine hormone is called a hormonal imbalance.

Treatment of endocrine disorders

There is a wide range of treatment options for endocrine disorders. This is due to the fact that diseases of the endocrine system vary greatly in type and severity. In some cases, hormone imbalances can be mild enough to go unnoticed or barely noticed and not require treatment. In other cases, such as hyperthyroidism, patients may experience unpleasant symptoms, including anxiety, heart palpitations and fatigue. Medications can be used to alleviate these symptoms and prevent potentially serious complications for a long time.

Drug treatment

If the body contains too much or too little of a certain hormone, synthetic hormones can be prescribed to correct imbalance and reduce symptoms. Chemotherapy can also be used to treat patients with endocrine gland cancer.

Surgery

In some cases, for example, in cancer and non-malignant tumors of the endocrine gland, surgery and / or radiation therapy may be required. After eliminating the main problem, hormone production should return to normal.
