The most common symptoms of endocrine diseases are:

• frequent heartbeat, problems with the cardiovascular system.

• perspiration, heat, feverish state

• emotional excitability

• gastrointestinal tract violations

• high pressure and headache

• lethargy, drowsiness, muscle weakness

• frequent urination.

• excruciating thirst

• drastic change in weight (its gain or weight loss with constant diet)

• memory degradation

Risk factors in the occurrence of endocrine diseases:

• Age - People who have crossed the 40-year line are most often affected by malfunctioning internal secretion glands

• Hereditary predisposition - many diseases of the endocrine system are "transmitted" by inheritance, for example, diabetes is often observed in both parents and children

• Overweight - more than 80% of obese people face problems with internal secretion glands

• Poor nutrition - unbalanced diet leads to malfunctions in many organs and systems - endocrine is no exception

• Bad habits - scientifically established that both alcohol and tobacco smoking negatively affect the work of endocrine glands

• Reduced physical activity - people who move little have delayed metabolism, overweight and poor blood supply to the endocrine glands, affecting their work

The endocrine system includes all glands of internal secretion, so endocrine diseases have a wide range of various symptoms and can masquerade as other diseases for a long time. Some signs of these pathological conditions are often attributed to fatigue, stress or overeating, while the disease begins to progress.
