What Are Endocrine Disorders?

Endocrine disorders are problems with the endocrine system, which includes the thyroid, pancreas, and various glands throughout the body. When it's not working correctly, it can create thyroid issues, along with problems processing or producing insulin. There are hormonal disorders that can occur with this system isn't working right, as well, and that can cause your pet a lot of discomfort and health issues that need prompt diagnosis treatment.

Are All Metabolic Disorders the Same?

Metabolic disorders are often caused by disorders of the endocrine system. Since the metabolic system takes the food your pets eat and converts it to energy, not being able to do that efficiently can really cause your pet some serious issues. Diabetes and thyroid conditions are two of the most common metabolic and endocrine disorders, but there are others to consider, as well. Because these are serious health conditions, making sure to treat them quickly is the right choice.

How Can a Vet Hospital Help?

A vet hospital can process blood work and perform other tests to see if your pets have problems with their endocrine systems or metabolisms. Your pets may seem lethargic, rapidly gained or lost weight, or be eating or drinking much more than they usually do. If you notice these things, bringing your pets to a veterinarian is the right choice to reduce risks to their long-term health and get them the treatment they need to start feeling more like themselves again.
