Endocrinology

Diabetes/Thyroid

Endocrinology is a specialty in medicine that studies the different endocrine structures and the hormones that they secrete. It specifically involves the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases associated with the impairment of the functions of these structures or with the hormones themselves.

An endocrinologist is a doctor who completes training in internal medicine (like a primary care physician) and then undergoes more training (usually two to three years) in the field of endocrinology.

 

Endocrinologists diagnose and treat hormonal imbalances, usually due to various gland conditions, such as:

  • Thyroid disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoporosis and bone health
  • Adrenal disorders
  • Pituitary disorders
  • Menopause issues in women
  • Testosterone problems in men

When do the Endocrinologists second opinion makes sense?

  1. The endocrinologist's second opinion makes sense when your doctor doesn’t have the required specialist knowledge for your condition.
  2. The Endocrinologists' second opinion makes sense when various doctors have given you different recommendations and you need help making a decision.
  3. The Endocrinologists' second opinion makes sense when you haven’t received a clear diagnosis or therapy recommendation.
  4. The Endocrinologists' second opinion makes sense when your doctor has recommended a major operation and you want to make sure that it’s the best way to help you.
  5. The Endocrinologists' second opinion makes sense when you feel that you haven’t been given enough information about your planned treatment.
  6. The Endocrinologists' second opinion makes sense when the suggested treatment promises no significant improvement to your condition.
  7. The Endocrinologists' second opinion makes sense when you want to find out if there are other treatment options you can pursue.
