Get answers fast when you have concerns about endocrinology problems


The definition of endocrinology is that it’s a branch of medicine involving the endocrine system – consisting of several glands – its diseases, and the hormones these glands secrete. Common endocrine problems or diseases include diabetes, thyroid disease, growth disorders, sexual dysfunction, and other hormone-related disorders.


Also included in endocrinology are issues of metabolism, growth and development, sleep, digestion, respiration, mood, stress, lactation, reproduction and sensory perception caused by hormones.


Hormones, which are secreted directly into the blood, may have several different effects on different organs, and one organ can be affected by more than one hormone. That makes endocrinology a valuable medical field, but also a confusing one for the patient.


Any time you have a question or want a second opinion about an endocrine problem, the verified medical Experts on JustAnswer are available at any time, day or night, and can be reached without making an appointment. You can even ask follow-up questions, and approve payment only when you’re completely satisfied.

Now diagnosed with hashimotos and down to .50 again but my weight is creeping up the scales and I e never had a weight problem or losing with a little effort. But even with effort to lose- I'm gaining. My last blood work tsh was 3.0 something up from 2.5 something. Would it benefit me to take maybe .75 again?
