WHAT IS ENDOCRINOLOGY?
Endocrinology is a medical specialty that diagnoses and treats conditions relating to various hormone-producing gland or organs in the body. Endocrinology doctors offer expertise in the management of diabetes (type 1, type 2, and gestational), thyroid conditions, and abnormal blood fats (cholesterol and triglycerides).
They also are experts at treating osteoporosis and parathyroid problems. In addition, some patients need an endocrinologist to help with less common conditions affecting the pituitary gland near the brain and the adrenal glands on top of the kidneys in the abdomen. Endocrine doctors coordinate their efforts to diagnose, treat, and manage these conditions with primary care providers.
