What does a gynecologist endocrinologist do?
Gynecologist-endocrinologist deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that are associated with hormonal disorders and studies the hormonal functions of the woman's body. Everything that happens in the human body is directly connected and depends on the endocrine system. It is due to the influence of hormones that the female body and organs of the reproductive system grow. The endocrine system affects the physical health and psychoemotional state, also the metabolic processes in the body and, most importantly, the ability to conceive and bear the child.
The main part of the work of the gynecologist-endocrinologist is directed to the study of estrogen. Estrogen is a female hormone that allows you to maintain youth, health and beauty. If this hormone in the body corresponds to the norm, then women's health at the highest level. The woman feels fine, and looks very young, sometimes younger than her peers. If there is a shortage of estrogen in the female body, then the woman's health and appearance are appropriate. Estrogen deficiency, as a rule, is caused by the extinction of ovarian function, which can lead to vegetative disorders, that is, high blood pressure, sweating, sudden changes in body temperature. The task of a gynecologist-endocrinologist is to detect such hormonal failures and eliminate them.
Another problem faced by a gynecologist-endocrinologist is an excess of estrogen in the female body. Excess of this hormone is the cause of tumors on female genital organs, violations of menstrual function and cycle, infertility. In addition to estrogen, in the female body there is another equally important hormone - progesterone. This hormone is responsible for mood, especially during the menstrual cycle. If the progesterone is normal, then the woman does not feel pain during menstruation. But if the level of the hormone is lowered or raised, the woman is waiting for pains in the mammary glands and painful periods. It is the violation of progesterone responsible for the irritability and depressive state of a woman.
A gynecologist-endocrinologist should do tests for estrogen and progesterone, since these hormones are responsible for a normal pregnancy. It is the lack of progesterone - this is the reason for unsuccessful attempts to become pregnant and miscarriages. An equally important hormone in the female body is testosterone. This hormone is responsible for physical performance and sexual desire. If the amount of testosterone in a woman is increased, then the body and body receive changes in the form of: increased hair, a narrow pelvis and broad shoulders, oily skin and much more.
The study of the hormonal background of the female body and the influence of hormones on normal vital activity is handled by a gynecologist-endocrinologist.
