What is an endocrinologist?
Endocrinology is a branch of medicine that
deals with glands and hormones.

Endocrinology is a subspecialty of internal medicine
dealing with the endocrine glands and hormones and their
roles in health and diseases. We endocrinologists must
first complete seven or more years of medical school and
post graduate training and attain Board Certification in
Internal Medicine. Then for an additional two to three
years, we study conditions specific to the endocrine
system--tissues and major endocrine glands including the
pituitary, pineal, thyroid, parathyroids, thymus, adrenals,
pancreas, ovaries and testes. Many other organs also
secrete hormones-the kidney, heart, stomach,
hypothalamus, brain, as well as the placenta. These
glands and tissues secrete hormones-body chemicals that
profoundly affect every known physiological function.

Hormones travel in your blood throughout the body and
affect many organs, including your brain, heart, liver,
kidneys, bone, skin and all endocrine glands. Hormones
initiate and regulate reproduction, growth and
development, response to stress and the environment.
These natural chemicals also increase the body's efficiency
and regulate activity levels, metabolism, appetite, thirst,
digestion, blood circulation, salt and water balance and
the excretion of metabolic waste.

As internists and endocrinologists, we provide treatment
for a wide range of functions and disorders of the human
body--diabetes, thyroid disorders, infertility, metabolism,
glandular cancers, growth hormone deficiency, genetic
dysfunction, heart disease, osteoporosis, obesity and
hormonal imbalances.
