Diabetes is the most common endocrine disorder, and falls under the endocrine specialty due to insulin deficiency and insulin as a hormone.
Excessive or underproduction of thyroid hormone could affect metabolism, heart rate, blood pressure, and the menstrual cycle in women.
Thyroid nodules are usually benign, but some may be malignant. Thyroid cancer is managed by an endocrinologist rather than an oncologist.
PCOS is characterized by central obesity, hirsutisim, and irregular menstrual cycles. It is a state of insulin resistance and hyperandrogenism.
Osteoporosis affects bone mineral density and strength, resulting in weak bones and fractures. The most common is postmenopausal osteoporosis.
As men age, testosterone levels decrease which can translate into decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, mood swings and weight gain.
Women in their late 40s to 50s start to experience mood swings, hot flashes, insomnia, and decreased sexual desire as a result of menopause.
