If you live in or around the Houston and Sugar Land areas and you suffer with diabetes, a problem with hormones, obesity or thyroid problems, you need the help of a qualified endocrinologist to overcome the problem and get your life back on track. These conditions are all associated with a large number of symptoms, some debilitating, that can make your life miserable.
Endocrinology is the medical specialty concerned with the health and function of glands that make up the endocrine system. These include the adrenal glands, hypothalamus, ovaries and testes. Working in concert with your thyroid, these glands must control and maintain proper balance for over 50 human hormones. Even in very small amounts, your hormones make a significant impact on bodily function and development. Your hormones regulate your growth, metabolism, movement, respiration, reproduction and sensory perception. They can also lead to:
- Type 1 diabetes
- Type 2 diabetes
- Gestational diabetes (pregnancy-related)
- Lipid disorders
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Pituitary disorders
- Thyroid nodules
- Hyperthyroid and hypothyroid
- Low testosterone
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
