Rely on the skilled endocrinologists at the Englewood Health Physician Network to help you prevent and manage endocrine health problems, including all types of diabetes.
What’s an Endocrinologist?
An endocrinologist is a doctor who specializes in caring for the endocrine system. This system makes hormones your body needs to control:
- Growth and development
- Metabolism, or burning food for energy
- Reproductive, or sexual, function
Feel confident you’ll get the best care possible because your Englewood Health Physician Network endocrinologist has the highest level of education possible.
Your endocrine system is made up of organs and glands, including the:
- Adrenal gland
- Pineal gland
- Pituitary gland
- Thymus gland
- Thyroid and parathyroid glands
- Ovaries in females
- Testicles in males
Your primary care provider may recommend you see an endocrinologist to treat:
- Cancer that affects a gland in the endocrine system.
- Fertility problems, trouble becoming or staying pregnant.
- Symptoms of menopause, when a woman permanently stops having a menstrual period.
- Nutrition and metabolic disorders, including diabetes, phenylketonuria (PKU), or Gaucher disease.
- Metabolic bone disorders, including osteoporosis, that affect bone strength.
- Thyroid gland diseases, including hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, goiter, or thyroid nodules.
Diabetes is a condition that affects how your body makes a hormone called insulin. This leads to high blood sugar, which can cause serious health problems without treatment.
