WHAT IS ENDOCRINOLOGY?
Physicians trained in the field of endocrinology provide care for such diseases as diabetes, obesity, and rare conditions of the endocrine system. These highly-qualified clinicians concentrate on methods of medicine to put patients’ thyroid and metabolic levels back in proper balance.
With today’s ever-growing obesity problem in America, the endocrinologist plays a vital role in managing patient care for overweight people with acquired diabetes. For patients with diabetes, hormonal imbalances, thyroid disease, hyperlipidemia and osteoporosis, the practice of endocrinology serves to offer people better solutions to lead a more normal, healthier life.
