All types of diabetes are treatable.
Patients with Type 1 diabetes must be treated with insulin, as well as a proper nutritional and physical activity. Patients with Type 2 diabetes are treated with physical activity and often with proper nutritional and oral medications, but sometimes insulin injections are also required. If diabetes is not adequately controlled the patient has a significantly higher risk of developing complications.
Causes of Endocrine Disorders
Endocrine disorders are typically grouped into two categories:
1. Endocrine disease that results when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone, called a hormone imbalance.
2. Endocrine disease due to the development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect hormone levels.
The endocrine's feedback system helps control the balance of hormones in the bloodstream. If your body has too much or too little of a certain hormone, the feedback system signals the proper gland or glands to correct the problem. A hormone imbalance may occur if this feedback system has trouble keeping the right level of hormones in the bloodstream, or if your body doesn't clear them out of the bloodstream properly.
