Endocrinology is the branch of internal medicine dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of endocrine diseases, or disorders, that involve the internal secretory glands that secrete hormones such as the pituitary, the thyroid, the parathyroid, the thymus, the pancreas, adrenal glands, ovaries and testicles.
Thyroid Diseases: Subacute Thyroiditis, Chronic Thyroiditis, Hypothyroidism, Pregnancy Dysthyroidism, Thyroid Nodules, Hyperthyroidism, Basedow’s Disease, Graves Orbitopathy, Thyroid Tumors, Thyroid Dysgenesis.
Pituitary diseases: Sheehan syndrome, hypopituitarism, empty saddle syndrome, hypophyseal hypogonadism, growth hormone deficiency, acromegaly, hyperprolactinemia and prolactinomas, pituitary adenomas, Cushing’s disease.
Adrenal diseases: adrenal-genital syndrome, Addison’s disease, secondary hypertension, hypercortisolism, hyperaldosteronism (Conn’s disease), phaeochromocytoma, adrenal adenoma, adrenal carcinoma.
Diseases of parathyroids and calcium-phosphorus metabolism: osteoporosis, primary and secondary hyperparathyroidism, vitamin D deficiency, calcium-phosphorus metabolism abnormalities, hypoparathyroidism.
Gynecological endocrinology: Amenorrhea, hirsutism.
Metabolic syndrome: Type 1 and 2 diabetes, endocrine obesity, hyperinsulinism, hypercholesterolemia, arterial hypertension.
Rare diseases: Autoimmune polyendocrine syndromes, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome (MEN), neuroendocrine tumors, Turner syndrome, Klinefelter syndrome, Kallman syndrome, Carney Complex.
You do not have a diagnosis yet: you have several symptoms, but you have not yet been diagnosed with the disease.
