Endocrinology

Endocrinology

by Michael Lazarus, MD

Endocrinology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the study, diagnosis, and management of conditions that affect the endocrine glands of the human body. These conditions include the very common diabetes mellitus and thyroid disorders, disorders of the pituitary gland and hypothalamus, disorders of the adrenal glands, bone density disorders related to parathyroid dysfunction, and reproductive disorders related to endocrine function.

For optimal understanding, the student needs to be familiar with the entirety of endocrine physiology, including the regulatory mechanism of hormones.

Endocrine pathologies have a very distinctive presentation, as the abundance or absence of endocrine secretions has immediate and recognizable effects on the physiology and, ultimately, the clinical presentation of the individual.

The general physician should have clarity on the typical presentation of common endocrine abnormalities and the accompanying clinical manifestations. Furthermore, owing to the intricate nature of the management of these conditions, the clinician must be able to redirect care to the appropriate subspecialist to ensure the best outcomes.
