Endocrinology at Wellstar
Wellstar endocrinologists diagnose diseases that affect the endocrine system, such as diabetes, thyroid disease, osteoporosis, menopause, some forms of hypertension, some causes of infertility, growth problems and cancer of the endocrine glands.
The endocrine system is a collection of glands—pancreas, ovaries, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, hypothalamus and testes. They create substances, like hormones, that are essential for healthy functioning. But too much or too little of a hormone can make you sick. Keeping your endocrine system balanced is vital to good health.
