Endocrinologists diagnose and treat diseases that affect your body’s metabolism, such as diabetes and thyroid diseases.
Diabetes can develop in childhood, adulthood or during pregnancy (gestational). Treatments include diet, exercise, medication, insulin and in extreme cases, surgery. Successfully controlling diabetes is important. Over time, high blood sugar levels from untreated diabetes can result in damage to your nerves, heart and other organs.
Our endocrinologists treat each patient individually. Because successfully treating conditions like diabetes can affect your lifestyle, we have nutritionist and special support programs available to help.
