Endocrinology

An endocrine system is a group of glands and cells that make hormones, which are released into your blood. These hormones travel to organs and tissues throughout your body. The system regulates growth, sleep, hunger, even the way your body uses food.

When the endocrine system isn’t working properly, you may be diagnosed with an endocrine disorder, such as diabetes or hyperthyroidism. An endocrinologist is a medical professional who treats disorders of the endocrine system.

At Stormont Vail Health, we treat patients of all ages with many types of endocrine disorders. We also encourage you to keep up with your primary care provider. A primary care provider can perform annual physicals, treat everyday illnesses, and help you keep your entire body healthy and strong.
