Endocrine Disease

Our System offers state-of-the-art diagnostic capabilities and advanced treatment options for a wide range of endocrine diseases and disorders. The endocrine system is a complex collection of hormone-producing glands that control basic body functions such as metabolism, growth and sexual development. The amount of hormones produced by each gland is carefully balanced. Too much or too little of a certain hormone can have effects throughout the body and cause various endocrine disorders. Many of the hormones produced by the endocrine glands interact with each other to maintain this delicate balance.

Endocrine diseases include type 1 diabetes, hypoglycemia, reproductive disorders, thyroid disorders, parathyroid disorders, pituitary disorders, pancreas disorders and adrenal gland disorders.
