What is Endocrinology?

Healthcare providers who work in this specialty are called endocrinologists. You may be treated by a doctor, nurse practitioner, or physician's assistant at an endocrinology treatment center. You may be referred to an endocrinologist by your family doctor or general practitioner if they suspect you have a problem with your endocrine system.

Most health conditions that affect your endocrine system are chronic—meaning they will be a part of your life permanently. That's why it's important to find an endocrinology specialist you like and build a good long term relationship.

Endocrinology Conditions

An endocrinologist focuses on the treatment of hormonal imbalances and abnormal endocrine system function. Some endocrine disorders are common, while others are very rare. Examples of endocrine disorders include:

Endocrinology Treatment

There are many health issues that overlap with hormonal problems. You may start with treatment by your general provider and move on to an endocrinology specialist if the problem worsens. Endocrinology treatment typically begins with extensive testing and diagnosis to determine the exact endocrine disorder.

Remember that some endocrinologists specialize in specific conditions—such as diabetes or growth disorders. If you are scheduled to see a new provider, ask beforehand if they specialize in your condition or work with others who have it. Examples of endocrinology subspecialties include:

  • Pediatric endocrinologists
  • Diabetic endocrinologists
  • Reproductive endocrinologists
  • Thyroid endocrinologists

The exact treatments provided by an endocrinologist will vary depending on the specific endocrine disorder that is present. Possible treatments include surgery, medication, hormone stimulation and lifestyle counseling.
