Endocrinologists are physicians who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and conditions caused by hormone imbalances in the endocrine system. Endocrine conditions include problems with the thyroid, pituitary, parathyroid, thyroid and adrenal glands. Endocrine problems can result in diabetes, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), growth hormone disorders, osteoporosis, glandular nodules or tumors, lipid disorders, obesity and metabolic diseases, infertility, hypogonadism, and the symptoms of menopause. The goal of treatment for endocrine disorders is to restore the proper balance of hormones whenever possible.

Diabetes management (Type 1 or 2) is a key component of most endocrinologists’ practices. Endocrinologists stress the necessity and value of tight glucose control and good nutrition along with effective exercise for patients with diabetes. Diabetes cannot be cured so early diagnosis and treatment are critical. Endocrinologists work closely with patients’ primary care providers, family, and caregivers to help each patient achieve optimal control and prevent complications. The complications of diabetes can include peripheral nerve damage, kidney dysfunction, blindness, heart and circulatory problems.
