The body’s endocrine system includes the pancreas, the thyroid, parathyroid, pineal, hypothalamus, adrenal and pituitary glands, and the ovaries and testes. It also involves many other organs that respond to, modify or metabolize hormones.
Pakistan has a huge burden of non-communicable diseases, such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, osteoporosis, metabolic disorders, and other endocrinopathies, faced by people of age groups, especially our older population. Poor diet, stress, smoking, polluted environment, and the general negligence of health cause problems in the endocrine gland leading to a wide spectrum of medical complications such as diabetes which leads to a further decline in health.
