Endocrine Disorders & Diabetes

Several endocrine abnormalities are reported in obesity. In case of certain disorders, endocrine glands metabolism slows down and the body does not spend taken calories. This is typical for all individuals suffering from hypothyroidism. They are prone to weight gain although they might not have changed their eating habits and do not consume high-caloric foods. Another endocrine disorders associated with obesity is Cushing's disease. It develops due to excess of cortisol, a hormone produced by the cortex of the adrenal gland. Hypopituitarism is one more endocrine dysfunction that may be blamed for obesity. The reason why hypopituitarism leads to obesity is not completely understood.


Type 2 diabetes is a progressive condition in which the body becomes resistant to the normal effects of insulin and/or gradually loses the capacity to produce enough insulin in the pancreas. It is associated with modifiable lifestyle risk factors and also has strong genetic and family related risk factors. It is managed with a combination of regular physical activity, healthy eating and weight reduction. As type 2 diabetes is often progressive, most people will need oral medications and/or insulin injections in addition to lifestyle changes.
