    Endocrinology is a sector of the study of biology. With the rising obesity levels in our society over the last decades, the treatment and prevention of diabetes are a major part of health care. Endocrinologists are physicians who study and treat the endocrine system. They may work as part of a private practice or on a team at a medical center. These doctors are working to treat diabetes as well as many other disorders such as those of the thyroid. Issues related to metabolism are also relevant. Diabetic mellitus are varied and are not always initially noticeable by the patient. Often, a person will come to a clinic or general doctor complaining of certain issues. A blood glucose test can determine if the individual is a diabetic. If Blood Sugar levels are too high to treat with diet alone a person may have to take insulin on a regular basis. Type 2 diabetes is the most serious condition and presents many challenges for the sufferer. They may experience complications from the disease with a foot or eye as they age. A surgeon may be consulted for an exam if toes or feet have severe damage. Those with hyperglycemia have problems with levels dropping too low. They suffer from their own set of symptoms and must carefully monitor their food intake. If a child is receives a diagnosis from a doctor they may be referred to a pediatric endocrinologist. Medicine is sometimes available in pill form. Other times, it has to be administered by injection. Endocrinology continues to advance through the efforts of researchers and physicians. Better practices are sought to help individuals who suffer from problems related to metabolism, blood sugar, and other issues of the endocrine system.
