Hormone imbalances of the endocrine system

Type 2 Diabetes – Hormonal Imbalances And Diabetes!

Hormones are found throughout the body and are used as a way of regulating many different functions of the body. Despite the jokes associated with hormonal women, men can have hormonal imbalances, too. While these have to be dealt with under normal circumstances, they are especially important when the individual is a diabetic.
Why are hormone imbalances so important to diabetics? Because insulin is a hormone. Since diabetes is the result of either an insufficient production of insulin, or the available insulin not being utilized properly, this results in the most significant hormonal imbalance of them all.

....  another hormone  --  when out of balance and can have a negative effect on diabetes is vasopressin. This hormone is produced by the hypothalamus and tells the pituitary gland to release certain hormones which offer many benefits to the body. Vasopressin not only helps to regulate blood pressure, but it helps to maintain the body’s proper levels of water and electrolytes. A deficit in any of these areas can become detrimental to anyone with diabetes.

When adrenaline and noradrenaline levels are balanced, the brain and muscles receive the oxygen and glucose that they need. But an imbalance in these areas means that these systems are not working properly and the diabetic’s health suffers because of it.

Hormone imbalances of the endocrine system account for more than 6,000 known disorders.
