Endocrinology is a discipline of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to hormones. It, therefore, focuses on hormone-producing glands and tissues in the endocrine system.

The Endocrine diseases can be divided into 3 broad categories as follows:

Endocrine gland hyposecretion:

In this condition, the gland produces insufficient hormones, leading to hormone deficiency.

Endocrine gland hypersecretion:

An overactive gland produces the excess hormone, resulting in overproduction levels of certain hormones.


Endocrine tumors can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous).

Some of the conditions associated with hormonal imbalances include Diabetes, Metabolic Disorders, Osteoporosis, Thyroid diseases such as Hyperthyroidism and Hypothyroidism, Hypertension, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), Hirsutism, Menopause, Hyperlipidaemia, Hypoglycemia, among many others.

A team of endocrinologists at Choithram Memorial Hospital monitors the hormone dose and can increase or reduce it to treat hormonal imbalances. In addition to diagnosing and treating diseases associated with the glands, endocrinologists treat the symptoms and signs related to these diseases to restore the body's normal hormone balance.

An endocrine system is a system of hormones in the human body.

An endocrine system includes the pancreas, the thyroid, the parathyroid, the pineal gland, the hypothalamus, the adrenal and pituitary glands, as well as the ovaries and testes. This system also involves organs that respond to, modify, or metabolize hormones.

Key endocrine disorders treated include-

Thyroid gland issues including Hypothyroidism, Hyperthyroidism, Thyroid Nodules, Thyroid Eye Disorders, and Thyroid Cancers.
Pituitary gland disorders such as Pituitary Tumours, Acromegaly, Cushing’s disease, Prolactin Disorders, Diabetes Insipidus, Hypophysitis, and Sheehan’s Syndrome.
Reproductive endocrine disorders that include PCOS, Hirsutism, Male & Female Infertility, and Sexual Disorders.
Pediatric Endocrinology that deals with Growth, Thyroid, Puberty, Bone & Calcium Disorders.
Adverse Effects Of Hormonal Imbalance

Irregular Menstruation

In most cases, irregular menstruation is the result of a condition called an anovulatory cycle. Anovulation occurs when the ovary doesn't release ova for more than three months due to hormonal imbalances.

Unnatural Weight Gain

A woman's estrogen (female sex hormone) levels drop during menopause. In many cases, this leads to weight gain. However, there can be other reasons besides menopause.

Appetite changes

The hormone leptin is produced by fat cells and decreases appetite while Ghrelin is a hormone that increases appetite. Changes in appetite are mainly caused by imbalances in these two factors.

Extreme Fatigue

Feeling tired, sluggish, or mentally foggy throughout the day is not normal. An imbalanced hormonal system shows these signs.

Anxiety and Mood Swings

The majority of women experience mood swings during menstruation, pre-menopause, menopause, and post-menopause. These conditions also occur due to hormonal imbalance.

Unexpected Hair Loss

A high level of estrogen in the body results in thinning of the hair. A hormonal imbalance can lead to hair loss in men as well, resulting in baldness.
