Endocrinology is a branch of medicine that deals with the entire endocrine system, diseases associated with it, and secretions known as hormones that are specific to it. An endocrinologist has the ability to diagnose and treat the problems caused by hormonal imbalances and eradicate the complications that result from them. Hormones help to regulate metabolism, growth, respiration, reproduction, movement and sensory perception. The study of Endocrinology focuses not only on hormones but also on various other glands and tissues that produce these hormones. The endocrine system comprises of many glands located in different parts of the body that discharge hormones directly into the blood and not into the duct system.
The adrenal glands also popularly known as suprarenal glands produce various hormones like adrenaline and the steroids cortisol and aldosterone, both of which are essential in the functioning of the human body. These glands are situated right above the kidneys. Adrenal insufficiency or adrenal disease is a hormonal disorder that happens when the glands fail to produce enough of certain required hormones.
The pituitary is nothing bigger than a pea-sized gland that is sheltered in a bony structure known as the sella turcica and is located at the base of the brain. This protects the pituitary and allows only very room for its expansion. Most of the vital functions of the endocrine glands is controlled by the pituitary and hence has the name the Master gland. A pituitary disease is a pituitary disorder that affects the pituitary gland. Overproduction or underproduction of the hormones produced from the pituitary gland directly affects the end-organ.
The thyroid gland is located at the front part of the neck right below the thyroid cartilage. The gland produces thyroid hormones that help in regulating metabolic rates in the human system and help in regulating body energy and temperature, the use of hormones in the body and also the growth and maturation of tissues. Diseases that arise due to the thyroid gland usually end up producing too much (resulting in hyperthyroidism) or too little (hypothyroidism) thyroid hormones. These problems are mostly commonly seen in women than in males.
Symptoms vary from mild to severe as per the age and gender of the patient.

Conventional or the typical way of treatment for Endocrinology comes with consumption of lifelong medication and surgery. But this is not the case with homeopathic medicines.

Some of the very useful and result-oriented medicines are:
