How does thyroid affect metabolism?

Thyroid hormones influence your metabolism in many different ways. For example, thyroid hormones help your body burn fat and stimulate the production of glucose, which provides you with more energy. Thyroid hormones also control your body’s internal temperature, which protects your organs from temperatures that are too hot or cold. For women, thyroid hormones also help maintain a regular menstrual cycle.

Is high cholesterol an endocrine disorder?

Some endocrine diseases are associated with high cholesterol or high triglycerides, which is why it can be helpful for adults with endocrine disorders to speak with an endocrinologist about getting tested for high cholesterol to evaluate their risk of heart attack or stroke.

Do endocrinologists treat low testosterone?

If male hormone levels are very low, an endocrinologist can provide a personalized treatment plan to help increase sexual function, sense of well-being, muscle mass and strength, and bone mineral density. The goal of treatment should be to achieve testosterone levels in the normal range.
