Endocrinology is a branch of medicine focused on testing and treating a variety of common endocrine disorders including diabetes, thyroid and parathyroid diseases.
Spire Healthcare hospitals have an experienced team of Consultant Endocrinologists and specialised nursing staff, so you can be confident that you are in expert caring hands.
The glands in a person's body release hormones. Endocrinologists treat people who suffer from hormonal imbalances, typically from glands in the endocrine system. The overall goal of treatment is to restore the normal balance of hormones found in a patient's body. Some of the more common conditions treated by endocrinologists include: Menopause Diabetes Metabolic disorders Lack of growth Osteoporosis Thyroid diseases Cancers of the endocrine glands Over- or under-production of hormones Cholesterol disorders Hypertension Infertility
An endocrinologist is a doctor who has studied the endocrine system and its diseases. These doctors know how to diagnose the diseases of the endocrine glands, and also how to treat them. Because these doctors specialise in these conditions, which can be complex and have hard-to-spot symptoms, an endocrinologist is your best advocate when dealing with hormonal issues. If a problem with the hormones is suspected, the endocrinologist's goal is to restore hormonal balance in the body. Becoming an endocrinologist requires a minimum of 10 years of training. These specialists are highly sought-after for their understanding of these unique chemical messengers. If you are struggling with your hormones, this type of specialist is the doctor you want on your side.
