Endocrinology is a rapidly expanding branch of internal medicine that cover the body’s hormone action (endocrine system) and its pathophysiology in human endocrine clinical syndromes.
The endocrine system includes the pancreas (the scattered islets of Langerhans where insulin among other hormones is produced), the pituitary, adrenal, thyroid, gonadal and parathyroid glands as well as the neuroendocrine,renal, gastrointestinal and other organ systems. An endocrinologist can diagnose and treat hormone problems and the complications that arise from them.
There are a few sub-specialities devoted to specific areas where hormones work.
Diabetologists are generally endocrinologists with a special interest in diabetes. Treatment of diabetes usually involves a multidisciplinary team of diabetic educators, nurses, podiatrists, ophthalmologists and renal physicians to educate, treat and monitor a patient. Treatment usually involves medications either orally or through insulin injections.
We provide robust diagnosis, treatment and management of all endocrine diseases. Our team provides a complete array of services in the field of endocrinology and diabetology.
