An Endocrinologist assists in the prevention, diagnosis and management of hormonal conditions. This covers a wide range of health issues including diabetes, polycystic ovarian syndrome, thyroid disorders, osteoporosis and many others.
If you are experiencing fatigue, weight-loss despite increased appetite, frequent urination, increased or reduced heart rate, sensitivity to cold and constipation or diarrhea, we encourage you to consult your doctor.
