Endocrinology

The endocrine system consists of glands that secrete hormones directly into the blood. Hormones have many different functions and modes of action; one hormone may have several effects on different target organs, and, conversely, one target organ may be affected by more than one hormone.

Overview

The clinical specialty of endocrinology focuses primarily on the endocrine organs, meaning the organs whose primary function is hormone secretion.

These organs include the pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, ovaries, testes, and pancreas.

An endocrinologist is a physician who specializes in treating disorders of the endocrine system, such as diabetes, hyperthyroidism, and many others

This greatly depends on the type and stage of diabetes that you are diagnosed with. For Type 1 diabetes in which the body does not produce enough insulin to control blood sugar, lifelong insulin therapy would be needed. Type 2 diabetes starts off with insulin resistance, where th...

Abnormal blood sugar levels, whether pre-diabetes or diabetes, are seen as a result of disharmony in the body’s Yin and Yang, and the malfunctioning of our five organs. A TCM physician will assess your condition by asking you about your general well-being and other symptoms th...
