Endocrinology helps fight infertility and obesity to name a few

Endocrinology is a medical specialty that focuses on endocrine glands, the behavior of hormones and their metabolic activity. These days roughly 3 million American both adults and children undergo diabetes treatment (type 1) while hypothyroidism is observed in 1 million adults in the UK.

In addition to the diabetes treatment, endocrinologists also target:

  • infertility
  • obesity
  • osteoporosis
  • growth disorders
  • pituitary disorders
  • etc.

The causes of these conditions are normally of two origins: when a gland produces an excessive or insufficient amount of hormones and when a lesion appears in the endocrine system. Disorders linked to hormones may also include genetic mutations, injury to a gland, infection etc.

Whatever the cause, endocrinologists are right there to provide you with professional medical assistance depending on your case, i.e. medications, radioisotopes, radiation therapy, individualized physical therapy, or surgery. 

5 questions to ask your endocrinologist during your first appointment at an overseas clinic:

  1. What type of treatment would you recommend trying first?
  2. What is your experience/education in treating patients with endocrine disorders?
  3. What are causes of my health problem?
  4. What medicines will you be using to treat my disease?
  5. How will my follow-up care look like?
