Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism
Endocrinology is the study of hormones released by the endocrine organs. These hormones have effects on other parts of the body. They influence or control a wide range of physiological activities, such as growth, development, puberty, level of alertness, sugar regulation and appetite, bone growth, etc. You also find that problems with hormones and the way they work contribute to some of the major diseases of mankind; for example, diabetes, thyroid conditions, pituitary conditions, some sexual problems, some neurological problems, appetite and obesity, bone problems, and cancer. Endocrinologists diagnose and treat patients with diseases affecting these organs and their effects on the body. In addition to doctors who are specialists in endocrinology, our healthcare providers include Certified Diabetes Educators (CDE) who will work with you on managing pre-diabetes and diabetes care.
