An endocrinologist is specially trained to diagnose and treat hormone imbalances and problems by helping to restore the normal balance of hormones in your system. Conditions treated can include:
- Thyroid diseases
- Metabolic disorders
- Over or under production of hormones
- Cholesterol (lipid) disorders
- Lack of growth (short stature)
- Cancers of the endocrine glands
Endocrinologists also conduct basic and clinical research to learn the best methods to treat patients with a hormone imbalance. Through research, endocrinologists can help develop new drugs and treatments for hormone problems.
