The body’s endocrine glands (pituitary gland, thyroid gland, parathyroid gland, pancreas, adrenal gland, ovary, testis) produce hormones that affect the functioning of the given area. Hormones regulate metabolism and reproduction.
Insulin is the hormone responsible for carbohydrate metabolism, the hormones produced by the thyroid gland (TSH, FT3, FT4, anti-TPO, anti-TG, Thyreoglobulin) control metabolic processes, regulate our body temperature, oxygen consumption, heart, nervous system and stomach and intestinal function.
Female (Estrogen, Progesterone, LH, FSH, Prolactin) and male sex hormones (Testosterone, FSH, LH, SGBH) are responsible for the development of secondary sexual characteristics and fertility.
The level of individual hormones in the body can show significant fluctuations even in normal cases.
The examination and treatment of hormonal disorders are performed by specialists in the field of internal medicine, endocrinology and gynaecology.
