Endocrinology

Endocrinology and nephrology overlap in many other diseases, such as urolithiasis and certain genetic disorders.Endocrine researchers, perhaps, have their hands full with the pandemic of diabetes and metabolic syndrome, or prefer to focus on the “classic” glands. Nephrologists, similarly, are busy with other renal disorders, which seem more “real” and life threatening than renal endocrine abnormalities.

The kidney has multiple endocrine roles, the hormones of the renin- angiotensin system (RAS), erythropoietin and dihydroxy vitamin D3. The kidney is an important producer of “local hormones” or autocrine and paracrine molecules, such as prostaglandins, endothelins, and adrenomedullin. Not only that, the kidney is the primary target organ for various hormones like aldosterone, angiotensin, and the natriuretic peptides. It is also affected by other hormonal diseases. Nephropathy is well characterized in acromegaly, hyperparathyroidism, and diabetes, to name a few. In humans, the major endocrine glands include the pineal gland, pituitary gland, pancreas, ovaries, testis, thyroid gland, parathyroid gland, and adrenal glands.The field of study dealing with the endocrine system and its disorders is endocrinology, a branch of internal medicine.
