Environmental Endocrinology

The rapidly evolving discipline of environmental endocrinology is briefly reviewed from the 'heroic era' to the present. Environmental endocrinology has developed in response to the need to understand how hormones modulate and control physiological processes in animals exposed to the exigencies of their particular, natural, environment. This has only been made possible through spectacular developments in hormone assay techniques which now make feasible hormone measurements on microlitre volumes of body fluids. The results of some recent research programmers working on animals in the field are reviewed. These include the reproductive responses of migratory birds in the Arctic, the role of anti diuretic hormone in the survival of desert rodents and marsupial wallabies, some interesting behavioral effects of glucocorticoids in reptiles, and the dynamic interplay between hormones and social status in primates.

Surgery and Care

Endocrine surgery is a surgical subspecialty of surgery that focuses predominantly on diseases of the endocrine glands such as thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands. Endocrine surgeons and Endocrinologists typically work closely together to provide the most advantageous care to patients afflicted with endocrine disorders.

Genomic endocrinology

Genomic endocrinology is defined as the insights that may be gained about endocrine pathology and physiology from application of the full range of genetic approaches .Genetic mechanisms leading to endocrine disease, and functional studies of genetic mutations that shed novel insights into the aetiology and pathogenesis of endocrine disorders.

Cowden Syndrome
Primary pulmonary hypertension
Hypogonadotropic & Hypogonadism
Congenital hypopituitarism
Congenital hyperinsulinism

Molecular and Cellular endocrinology

Molecular and Cellular endocrinology is the field of study that majorly focuses on all aspects related to the biochemical and genetic effects, secretions and synthesis of extracellular signals (hormones, neurotransmitters, etc.) and to the understanding of cellular regulatory mechanisms involved in hormonal control.

Organ transplantation

Islet transplantation is a kind of transplantation where the transplantation is done by transferring isolated islets from a donor pancreas into another person. This is an experimental treatment for diabetes. Once the islets are transplanted, the islets begin to produce insulin, actively regulating the level of glucose in the blood. Like this the pancreas can also be transplanted from one person to another and this method is called xenotransplantation.

Overweight & Obesity

The term obesity refers to the condition where there is an accumulation of excess body fat that it might have a negative effect on their health. Being overweight may refer to the inappropriate or too much weight for height. Additionally, being overweight may due to other structures in the body such as the muscle and the bone rather than fats .being overweight can contributes to several diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack... etc.

Thyroid Disorders, Symptoms, &Treatment

The metabolic rate of most of your body's organs was determined by thyroid. Normally, when thyroid hormone levels in the body are high, they will "switch off" the production of TSH, which in turn stops the thyroid from making more T4 and T3 .Problems occur when the thyroid gland becomes either under active (hypothyroidism) or overactive (hyperthyroidism). Thyroid problems are more common in women than men. Cancer may also develop in the thyroid gland. The most common cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto's thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition where the body makes antibodies that destroy parts of the thyroid gland. Thyroid hormone production can be suppressed or halted completely by following these methods radioactive iodide treatment, Anti-thyroid medication and Surgery.

  • Pseudo hypothyroidism
  • Sub clinical Hypothyroidism
  • Pituitary disorders
  • Subacute thyroiditis
  • Hypothyroidism & Hyperthyroidism
  • Nanotechnology treatments
