Why should you visit an endocrinologist?
An endocrinologist is your ‘go-to’ doctor for your hormonal issues. This specialist doctor studies the endocrine system- the system that controls hormones. There are more than 50 different hormones in a human being. An endocrinologist takes care of the problems arising with these hormones.
You would want to visit this specialist doctor if you have any of the following conditions:
Endocrine Gland Cancer
What kind of tests do endocrinologists do?
Your treatment for an endocrine disorder will begin with a discussion with your doctor. After diagnosing your symptoms, your doctor may perform some tests on you based on your condition. The types of tests performed are different for every disorder. However, some of the diagnostic tests are common.
Here is a list of some common tests performed by an endocrinologist:
24-hour urine collection test
Bone density test
ACTH stimulation test
Glucose sensor test
How do I know if I have an endocrine disorder?
It may be difficult and risky for you to analyze your symptoms on your own. We advise you to ask your primary physician for help. He/she may further recommend you to visit an endocrinologist.
Sadly, there is no specific set of symptoms that we can give you. There are no particular symptoms which could commonly identify an endocrine disorder. There is a wide variety of endocrine disorders and hence, the symptoms vary largely.
Common symptoms include weakness and fatigue. Other major symptoms are different depending on the kind of disorder. Because of this, it is advised to consult a specialist doctor as soon as possible.
