Almost,all functions of the body are directly or indirectly dependent on a healthy Endocrine (Hormone) system. Hence, a healthy Endocrine (Hormone) system is a key to healthy living.
The clinical cases of the Endocrine diseases (Like Diabetes Mellitus, Hypothyroidism, Addison's Disease , Cushing's disease etc) are only the tip of the iceberg. Majority of the population is suffering from the subclinical cases. These cases need to be identified and treated before the frank disease appears.
Endocrine Diseases (including Diabetes Mellitus) usually present as constellation of medical problems (syndromes).
Commonly, more than one endocrine organ is involved leading to a cascade of hormonal imbalances disturbing the homeostasis and leading to various diseases.
Having long standing vague symptoms like Fatigue, Lethargy, Mood disturbances, Low libido, Weight gain, Weight loss, losing muscle mass, Foggy thinking, Amotivation etc. are strong clues towards the underlying hormonal issues and should call for hormones evaluation.
