What Is An Endocrinologist?
We specialize in hormones.
Endocrinology is the 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.
