Diabetes and Endocrinology

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes:

  • This is a group of diseases that result in high blood sugar (too much glucose in the blood). The most common types are:
    • Type 1 Diabetes: An autoimmune condition where the body's immune system attacks and destroys insulin-producing cells in the pancreas.
    • Type 2 Diabetes: Resulting from the body's ineffective use of insulin. It is largely the result of excess body weight and physical inactivity.
    • Gestational Diabetes: Occurs when pregnant women without a previous history of diabetes develop high blood sugar levels.

What is Endocrinology?

Endocrinology:

  • This is the study of the endocrine system, which includes the glands and organs that produce and secrete hormones. Hormones are chemical messengers that travel through the bloodstream to tissues and organs. They regulate various bodily functions, including metabolism, growth and development, mood, sexual function, reproduction, and sleep.
  • An Endocrinologist is a physician who specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the endocrine system.
  • Besides diabetes, endocrinologists also treat other conditions like thyroid disorders, adrenal gland disorders, pituitary gland tumors, osteoporosis, hypertension, cholesterol (lipid) disorders, and infertility, among others.
