What is Endocrinology?

Endocrinology covers all things hormonal. From stubborn weight gain and menopause, to erectile dysfunction and diabetes. Multiple glands in the body are responsible for accurately secreting hormones at the proper time. When one or more glands is not properly functioning, symptoms can range anywhere from minor to extreme. Endocrinology is the investigatory branch of medicine that dives into the "why" of hormonal imbalances.

What can an Endocrinologist do for you?

It's all about balance. An endocrinologist will run labs and assist the body back to balance using hormone-regulating medicines. This modality of holistic medicine falls more on the conventional spectrum as tools include but are not limited to injections and prescriptive medications. Certain cases need more invasive medicine to bring the body back to balance...it simply needs extra support and we're happy to provide it.

Some common concerns that endocrinology addresses include:

  • Diabetes

  • Thyroid diseases

  • Infertility

  • Growth issues

  • Obesity

  • Adrenal disorders

  • Dyslipidemia

  • Male and Female Hormone disorders

What does it look like to work with an Endocrinologist?

The world is your oyster. Most initial consultations include subjective and objective findings to gain insight on the cause of your ailments. This typically includes weight assessment, blood pressure and blood sugar readings, and necessary lab work.

Follow-up appointments will be tailored to your needs. For example, weight loss programs can include B12 injections or may be geared more towards blood sugar regulating depending on your physician's findings. Hormonal cases can include hormone therapy or simple lifestyle modifications depending on your physician's findings. Regardless of the tailored track, our physician is on your side!
