Endocrinological Disorder in Men
The endocrine system consists of glands that regulate our growth, metabolism, and sexual development. In men, the endocrine glands release the sex hormones estrogen and testosterone.
And sexual dysfunction is an indication of serious Endocrinological Disorder. Low sexual desire and reduction in ejaculate volume are associated with less than normal testosterone levels in men.
Endocrinological Disorder Causes
The endocrine system in our body has a natural feedback system that helps maintain hormonal balance. However, in cases where the feedback system fails to alert the specific glands, the body’s bloodstream doesn’t get the desired level of hormones, which leads to Endocrinological disorders.
In other cases, endocrinological disorders may be caused by
- Genetic disorder such as multiple endocrine neoplasias (MEN)
- Infection, injury, or tumor
- Failure of one gland to stimulate another gland for hormone production.
Endocrinological disorders can be categorized into two groups:
- Endocrinological disorders from hormonal imbalance.
- Endocrinological disorders development of lesions such as tumors, nodules, etc.
