Endocrinology is the science of glands and hormones. Why do people with diabetes see an endocrinologist? Because diabetes is one of the diseases that affects the endocrine system. The pancreas is a gland that produces a hormone called insulin. In type 1 diabetes, the insulin producing cells in the pancreas are destroyed. In type 2 diabetes, insulin is still produced but the body becomes resistant to it.
What an endocrinologist can do? An endocrinologist specializes in diagnosing and treating disorders of the endocrine system. This can be a complicated specialty. There are many glands and hormones in the body, each with its own job to do. It is a delicate chemical balance and keeps our bodies running smoothly with very little effort on our part. When the balance is upset, serious diseases and conditions can develop.
Endocrinologists can help you manage your diabetes, by prescribing insulin’s and/or medications, offering diet plans and helping you to keep a close watch on your blood glucose levels. Because they are specialists in the field of diabetes, they are usually up on all the newest medications and treatments.
