Endocrinology

Endocrinology is the medical specialty that treats problems related to hormones and the organs that produce them – the endocrine glands. This specialty studies several medical conditions namely thyroid diseases, parathyroids (regulation of phosphorus metabolism, calcium and vitamin D), diabetes, obesity, hypertension, dyslipidemias (excess blood fats – cholesterol and triglycerides), excess body hair, polycystic ovaries, adrenal diseases (nodules, Addison’s disease, congenital hyperplasias), acromegaly and pituitary diseases, growth problems, development and puberty.

 

Therefore, some endocrine situations can lead to overweight, acne, changes in body fat distribution, lipodystrophy and cellulite. As a result, they lead to impaired body image, so hormone therapies can have a significant aesthetic impact.
