Endocrinology is the study of hormones. The endocrine system is the glands that release hormones into the circulatory system. Hormones travel in the blood and control many important body functions by delivering signals between the cells. Insulin, for example, is a hormone that moves food energy from the blood into muscle, fat and liver cells. When these parts of the body become irregular and a tumor forms, it can be especially dangerous because it can affect the production of hormones in your body. We provide consultations as well as long-term care for patients with endocrine disorders, including diabetes, obesity and related metabolic problems, disorders of mineral metabolism including osteoporosis, adrenal, pituitary, and gonadal dysfunction, and thyroid disease.
