What is endocrinology?

Endocrinology is the science that studies the different types of endocrine glands in the human body. Endocrine glands are those whose secretions  (hormones) pour into the blood. The most important ones are the thyroid, the adrenal glands, the pancreas, the gonads (testicles and ovaries), the parathyroid glands and the pituitary gland.

These glands are influenced by several external factors, such as stress, nutrition, sleep or light. There is therefore a link and a balance that is created between our hormonal system and our environment. It is this balance that keeps us healthy.

Given the complexity of the hormonal system, endocrinology occurs at many levels. It affects all the functions of the body. In particular digestion, with hormones such as insulin and glucagon, which regulate blood glucose, or leptin which acts on the fat reserves or ghrelin and PYY-36 which are responsible for regulating our appetite, reproduction, such as puberty, pregnancy or menstrual cycles, as well as dermatology or even growth.
