Endocrinology is the study of medicine that relates to the endocrine system,
which is the system that controls hormones. Endocrinologists are specially
trained physicians who diagnose diseases related to the glands. Because
these doctors specialize in these conditions, which can be complex and
symptoms, an endocrinologist is your best advocate when dealing with hormonal issues.
Most patients begin their journey to the endocrinologist with a trip to
their primary care provider or family doctor. This doctor will run a series
of tests to see what could be the potential problem the patient is facing.
If a problem with the hormones is suspected, the primary care doctor will
provide a referral. The endocrinologist's goal is to restore hormonal
balance in the body.
Some of the more common conditions treated by endocrinologists include:
- Adrenal disorders
Osteoporosis and bone health
- Endocrine disorders in children (lack of growth, problems with puberty)
Heart problems (high cholesterol,
high blood pressure
- Men's health (infertility, testosterone levels)
- Pituitary disorders
- Thyroid disorders
- Weight and metabolism
- Women's health (menopause, infertility, some menstrual problems)
