An endocrinology specialist treats the disorders of the endocrine glands, such as: thyroid, pituitary, sexual glands and adrenal glands, including the hormones secreted by them. Endocrine disorders are among the most complex, their diagnosis and treatment requiring rigour, attention to detail, constant monitoring of parameters resulting from laboratory tests and radiological investigations.
Paraclinical investigations (specific laboratory tests for various hormonal readings and multiple radiological investigations) are essential for an endocrinological examination, since they are intended to increase accuracy and diagnosis reliability in early stages. Early diagnosis may help stop the progression of a disease, and eliminate or reduce associated complications. The diseases that can be diagnosed in the subclinical stage include the subclinical thyroidism, which can result in cardiovascular and mental function impairments if it is not timely diagnosed and continuously monitored.
It is good to know that many cardiovascular diseases can arise from endocrine causes, as is the case of secondary hypertension, metabolic syndrome, obesity or dyslipidemia.
