You can’t see or touch endocrine when it’s normal, but you can feel it when it’s out of whack:
Acne, chloasma, thyroid disease, diabetes, irregular menstruation…
The endocrine system of human body is a large family, including hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, islet, adrenal gland, sex gland and many other glands, as well as the endocrine tissues and cells distributed in other organs.
By secreting hormones, these glands affect our metabolism, growth, development, reproduction, aging, pathological changes, etc. to achieve the regulation of human physiological functions.
Such an important system, if it gets out of whack, can be quietly healthy.
Symptoms of endocrine disorders
Chloasma, gynecological diseases
Due to endocrine imbalance, 28.2% of young and middle-aged women have facial chloasma and freckles, and 27.5%~31% of women have gynecological diseases such as hysteromyoma.
The incidence of childhood endocrine diseases such as early puberty and short stature is increasing.
Diabetes is the most common disease in the department of endocrinology and metabolism. The incidence of diabetes in China is over 11%, and about 120 million people have diabetes.
The number of cases of thyroid diseases in China exceeds 200 million.
Up to 10% to 15% of the incidence of infertility, a large part is due to endocrine disorders.
In addition, at present, endocrine disease patients and the number of new characteristics.
The number of patients with endocrine diseases increased sharply
The incidence of endocrine diseases was significantly higher than a few years ago, both in terms of epidemiological data and clinical data.
The population tends to be young
Young people account for a considerable proportion of patients with endocrine disorders.
Who’s interfering with your hormones?
The human body is an intelligent system with its own circadian rhythms, keeping in sync with the outside world day and night. When people do not comply with life rhythm, may cause endocrine disorders.
Eat too much, too late
Human hormone secretes more during the day, less at night.
If you eat too much dinner and eat too late, you will get elevated levels of digestive hormones, which are then uploaded to the hypothalamus pituitary, causing systemic endocrine disorders.
Long-term persistence of this form of dinner will also increase the risk of obesity, easy to cause diabetes and other metabolic diseases.
Stress is an important factor in hormonal disorders.
Studies in the United States have found that 60 to 90 percent of all illnesses are linked to stress. Living under pressure for a long time, your body will “protest.”
Stress can affect the normal function of the male reproductive system and sperm quality. Causes female to appear menstruation maladjustment or amenorrhea, can cause sterility seriously.
Too little activity
In the past, people paid attention to “sunrise and sunset”. Even though farming and planting may make the body tired, the regular lifestyle gives the body time to repair.
However, in modern society, people’s physical activity is far less than before, which virtually increases the risk of endocrine diseases.
Studies have shown that many chronic diseases, including hypertension and diabetes, are related to sleep. Sleeping less than 4 hours a day or more than 10 hours can increase the risk of death by 1.5 to 2 times.
Lack of sleep and excessive sleep can affect health through the imbalance of cardiac autonomic nerve, endocrine and metabolic disorder and the formation of inflammatory state.
