Diabetes & Endocrinology

The need to stay away from anything sweet is what the life of a person with diabetes looks like. But, there’s much more to it that you can comprehend. The same goes for hormonal imbalances also. There are many other health complications that come into the picture when you either have diabetes or any hormonal disorder.

Diabetes and Endocrinology

So understanding diabetes and endocrinology is one way to deal with most of the health conditions caused due to diabetes and endocrinology problems.

What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a health condition that occurs when the glucose in the blood, also known commonly as blood sugar, is too high. The glucose present in the blood is the main source of energy that comes from food. Insulin is the hormone produced by the pancreas, which helps the glucose get into cells to be used for energy. Sometimes the body does not produce enough or rather any insulin. In some cases, the body doesn’t use the insulin properly which results in the glucose to stay in the blood without reaching the cells.

What is endocrinology?

Endocrinology is the study that deals with the problems and treatments of the endocrine system. It is known as the chemical messenger of the body that passes from one or a group of cells to the others. There are a number of glands in the body that secrete hormones. The endocrine gland is one among all these glands which secrete hormones internally, through the bloodstream.

The endocrine system helps in controlling the processes of:

  • Metabolism
  • Growth and development
  • The internal balance of body systems or Homeostasis
  • Reproduction
  • Response to stress or injury
