Endocrinology

If you have an endocrine disorder such as diabetes, thyroid disease, or Cushing’s disease, you need expert medical attention. Our endocrinologists at Visalia Medical Clinic will work with you to manage your condition in the most effective manner.

Endocrinology is the branch of medicine focusing on the endocrine system and hormones. Hormones are responsible for numerous body functions, and the symptoms of endocrine disorders differ greatly depending on what hormones are affected. Endocrine disorders are usually diagnosed through blood and urine tests, and treatment depends on the type of condition you have.

Conditions treated by an endocrinologist include:

  • Adrenal disorders
  • Osteoporosis and bone health
  • Diabetes
  • Endocrine disorders in children (lack of growth, problems with puberty)
  • Heart problems (high cholesterol, triglycerides, high blood pressure)
  • Men's health (infertility, testosterone levels)
  • Pituitary disorders
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Weight and metabolism
  • Women's health (menopause, infertility, some menstrual problems)
