ENDOCRINOLOGY

OVERVIEW

Ford Hospital endocrinologists deliver targeted and comprehensive consultation and treatment for patients who have a broad spectrum of conditions affecting the endocrine system, including diabetes, pituitary and other glandular disorders.

The endocrine system is actually a collection of glands that send hormones through the bloodstream to regulate the body’s metabolism, growth, appetite, sexual development, blood sugar regulation and many other functions. When the pancreas, thyroid, adrenal or other glands function improperly, a patient can develop a variety of diseases and disorders, including diabetes, hypertension and obesity, as well as pituitary and hypothalamic disorders.
