As endocrinologists, we specialize in how hormones affect the body's many functions.
Many of our patients live with diabetes, both type 1 and 2, and we use various treatments which suit their lifestyles. We will use insulin when needed, but if possible, we will take patients off insulin if their condition can be controlled with oral medicine and life style modification. We incorporate the latest technology in our management, such as continuous glucose monitoring devices and all kinds of insulin pumps as needed.
We also see patients with hormonal imbalance which may cause thyroid disease, adrenal gland problems, menopause, impotence, sexual dysfunction, polycystic ovarian syndrome, excessive hair growth, and hair loss. Some of our patients also have metabolic disorder, which can result in obesity and unexplained weight gain or fatigue.
We carefully listen to our patients so we fully understand their problem, then we confirm the diagnosis by ordering appropriate lab tests.
