Endocrinology Research and Metabolism is a peer reviewed journal that focuses on publication of manuscripts pertaining to all aspects of endocrine physiology and metabolism. Endocrinology Research and Metabolism covers topics related to Endocrine physiology and metabolism, including hormone secretion; hormone action; biological effects providing important insights into endocrine systems and diseases at molecular, biochemical, cellular, genomic, comparative, and organism levels.
The aim and scope of this Journal is to produce high quality articles on related aspects of Endocrine physiology and metabolism.
The journal accepts manuscripts in the form of original research article, review article, short communication, case report, letter-to-the-Editor and Editorials for publication in an open access platform. All the articles published in the journal can be accessed online without any subscription charges and will receive the benefit of extensive worldwide visibility.
Processing of the articles will be done through operation by the authors and the publisher. It helps in maintaining the quality of the peer review process and provides easy access to the authors to track the process of manuscript evaluation and publication in an automated way.
Endocrine disorders involve the body’s over- or under-production of certain hormones, while metabolic disorders affect the body’s ability to process certain nutrients and vitamins. Endocrine disorders include hypothyroidism, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, diseases of the parathyroid gland, diabetes mellitus, diseases of the adrenal glands (including Cushing’s syndrome and Addison’s disease), and ovarian dysfunction (including polycystic ovary syndrome), among others. Some examples of metabolic disorders include cystic fibrosis, phenylketonuria (PKU), hyperlipidemia, gout, and rickets.
Endocrinology is a branch of biology and medicine that deals with the study of the endocrine system in the human body. Endocrine system refers to the collection of endocrine glands (ductless glands) of organism that secrets chemical substances directly into blood called hormones and these chemical substances are crucial for the normal functioning of the body. Endocrinology mainly deals with the diagnosis and treatment and patient management of diseases related to hormones.
Metabolism refers to a chemical process occurs in the living cell or organism that is necessary for life.
Endocrine diseases are disorders of the endocrine system. Most common endocrine disorders are Glucose homeostasis disorders, Thyroid disorders, Calcium homeostasis disorders and Metabolic bone disease, Pituitary gland disorders, Sex hormone disorders.
A hormone is a chemical produced by glands in multicellular organisms that are transported by the circulatory system to target distant organs to regulate physiology and behaviour. Hormones are used to communicate between organs and tissues for physiological regulation and behavioral activities, such as digestion, metabolism, respiration, tissue function, sensory perception, sleep, excretion, lactation, stress, growth and development, movement, reproduction, and mood.
Pediatric endocrinology is a medical subspecialty dealing with disorders of the endocrine glands, such as variations of physical growth and sexual development in childhood, diabetes and many more. By age, pediatric endocrinologists, depending upon the age range of the patients they treat, care for patients from infancy to late adolescence and young adulthood.
Neuroendocrinology is the study of the interaction between the nervous system and the endocrine system, including the biological features of the cells involved, and how they communicate. The nervous and endocrine systems often act together in a process called neuroendocrine integration, to regulate the physiological processes of the human body. Neuroendocrinology arose from the recognition that the brain, especially the hypothalamus, controls secretion of pituitary gland hormones, and has subsequently expanded to investigate numerous interconnections of the endocrine and nervous systems.
A thyroid disease is a medical condition impairing the function of the thyroid. Different thyroid diseases include Hashimoto's thyroiditis, hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. These diseases have a large range of symptoms and affect all ages.
Diabetes, is a group of metabolic diseases in which there are high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period. Diabetes is due to either the pancreas not producing enough insulin or the cells of the body not responding properly to the insulin produced.
Hypoglycemia, also known as low blood sugar, is when blood sugar decreases to below normal levels. This may result in a variety of symptoms including clumsiness, trouble talking, confusion, loss of consciousness, seizures, or death. A feeling of hunger, sweating, shakiness, and weakness may also be present. Symptoms typically come on quickly.
