Diabetes, Endocrinology, Thyroid
An endocrinologist is a doctor who specializes in conditions related to the endocrine system, the complex network of hormone-secreting glands in the human body. Hormones are critical to healthy function, and a number of conditions can be caused by under or overproduction of hormones, an inability to process certain hormones, and other problems with the endocrine system. Diabetes and thyroid problems are two of the most common conditions endocrinologists deal with in their work. The goal of the endocrinologist is to determine the source of the problem, and to develop a treatment plan to address it.
