What Is an Endocrinologist?

An endocrinologist is a medical specialist trained to diagnose and treat diseases affecting the glands, hormones and metabolism, including conditions that are often complex and involve many body systems. The endocrinologist’s goal is to restore the normal hormonal balance in your body.

Diabetes Care

Diabetes is a condition in which the body needs help turning food into energy because it is unable to produce or use insulin to process glucose in the body. According to the National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse, 17.9 million people in the United States have been diagnosed with diabetes; another 5.7 million people are undiagnosed.

There are two types of diabetes, and one special type:

  • Type 1 diabetes—when the pancreas is unable to produce insulin and insulin injections are required
  • Type 2 diabetes—the body produces insulin but is unable to use it efficiently
  • Gestational diabetes affects pregnant women

Thyroid Disorders Care

The thyroid gland, located in the neck, is an endocrine gland that produces hormones that regulate physiological functions. Symptoms arise if the thyroid does not produce the correct amount of hormones, either too much (hyperthyroidism) or too little (hypothyroidism). These symptoms may include:

  • Fatigue
  • Slower metabolism
  • Cooler body temperature

Cape Diabetes and Endocrinology is fully equipped with ultrasound diagnostics to diagnose thyroid problems quickly.
