What are Hormones & How do They Affect Our Lives?

Hormones are chemical secretions released by glands in our body to control our physiological processes. These hormones are known as endocrine hormones and are secreted by endocrine glands.

The doctors who specialize in understanding, diagnosing and treating diseases caused by the overproduction or underproduction of hormones, are called endocrinologists.


Some of the most important hormones are -

  •   Aldosterone
  •   Corticosteroids
  •   Antidiuretic Hormone (Vasopressin)
  •   Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (ACTH)
  •   Growth Hormone
  •   Luteinizing Hormone (LH)
  •   Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
  •   Oxytocin
  •   Prolactin
  •   Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)
  •   Renin & Angiotensin
  •   Erythropoietin
  •   Glucagon
  •   Insulin
  •   Estrogen
  •   Progesterone
  •   Norepinephrine
  •   Testosterone
  •   Melatonin
  •   Growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH)
  •   Thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH)
  •   Gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH)
  •   Corticotropin releasing hormone (CRH)
  •   Humoral Factors

Hormones affect your physiological processes and the vice versa is also true. Therefore, when some other disease affects your hormones & the glands producing them, your primary care doctor & endocrinologist work together to make you healthier.

When your hormones are not functioning properly, you may suffer from several diseases and disorders. An endocrinologist will help you manage those diseases and disorders and in cases where it's possible, may even cure them.
