Endocrinology – modern consultation and diagnostic techniques
Endocrinology is the medical specialty that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the endocrine system consisting of the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal glands, ovaries, testicles. The hormones produced by the glands that make up the endocrine system are involved in controlling all functions of the human body, so any change they suffer can have severe consequences.
The Importance of Endocrinology
There are situations in which certain endocrine disorders can be diagnosed in the subclinical phase, and through early diagnosis can prevent the evolution of the disease and the appearance of unwanted complications. For example, in the case of thyroid disease, its frequency increases with age and can have a number of adverse effects on other body functions such as the cardiovascular system and mental function, if the condition remains undiagnosed.

A wide range of cardiovascular diseases have endocrine causes, for example: secondary hypertension, metabolic syndrome, obesity, dyslipidemia.
