Treatment for Hormone Disorders

Endocrinology is the study of medicine that relates to the endocrine system, which is the system that controls hormones. You will need an endocrinologist’s help to treat hormone disorders. Unfortunately, hormone disorders can be difficult to diagnose. Hormones fulfill several roles in the body, and the symptoms of hormone disorders are similar to the symptoms of many other medical conditions.

The following are some common symptoms of hormone disorders:

  • Irregular periods

  • Changes in blood pressure
  • Excessive sweating
  • Unusual weight gain or weight loss
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Frequent headaches
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Bloating
