Does anyone you know have an Endocrine Problem?

It is important for the general public to know that hormonal disorders and imbalances of the body’s fuel stores and minerals, including diabetes mellitus are to be treated by qualified endocrinologists. The table below lists the clues that a person could need an endocrinology consultation.

As we enter the new millennium, medical science has become more and more specialized. Endocrinology is arguably the most rapidly developing superspeciality, and offers medical treatment for diseases ranging from growth and sexual problems to tumors and life threatening catastrophes. It is the duty of every individual to be aware of endocrine disorders, as they are remarkably responsive to treatment. In addition, there is hope that many endocrine disorders can now be prevented. Greater patient awareness and better availability of endocrinologists will go a long way in reducing the burden of endocrine disease in the Indian subcontinent.
