Endocrinology involves a wide range of systems within the human body.

Eight major glands work to regulate the body’s metabolism, reproduction, growth and sleep, among other systems.

There are three broad groups of endocrine disorders.

The endocrine system is an information/signal system in the human body using chemical messengers called hormones, each of which has its own distinct function.

Thyroid Issues

The term “Thyroiditis” refers to “inflammation of the thyroid gland”. There are many possible causes of thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, also known as chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis, is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in the United States. It is an autoimmune disorder in which antibodies directed against the thyroid gland lead to chronic inflammation.

Adrenal Disorders

Located at the top of each kidney, the adrenal glands produce hormones that help the body control blood sugar, burn protein and fat, react to stressors like a major illness or injury, and regulate blood pressure. Two of the most important adrenal hormones are cortisol and aldosterone.

Osteoporosis and Bone Health

Bone health is important for everyone. The risk of osteoporosis increases with age. However, there are steps you can take at any age to prevent osteoporosis or delay its effects. Read more about osteoporosis symptoms and treatment in this section and in our related fact sheets.

Heart Health

The endocrine system is a network of glands and organs that produce, store, and secrete hormones. It influences many aspects of the cardiovascular system, which include the heart and blood vessels.

Let East Valley Endocrinology Help You Find Your Best Treatement Plan 

Most patients begin their journey to the endocrinologist with a trip to their primary care provider or family doctor. This doctor will run a series of tests to see what could be the potential problem the patient is facing. If a problem with the hormones is suspected, the primary care doctor will provide a referral. The endocrinologist’s goal is to restore hormonal balance in the body.

An endocrinologist is a doctor who has studied the endocrine system and its diseases. Endocrinologists know how to diagnose the diseasess and issues of the endocrine glands, and also how to treat them. Because we specialize in these conditions (which can be complex and have hard-to-spot symptoms) an endocrinologist is your best advocate when dealing with hormonal issues.
