Endocrinologists treat people who suffer from hormonal imbalances, typically from glands in the endocrine system. The overall goal of treatment is to restore the normal balance of hormones found in a patient's body. Some of the more common conditions treated by endocrinologists include:
- Metabolic disorders
- Lack of growth
- Thyroid diseases
- Cancers of the endocrine glands
- Over- or under-production of hormones
- Cholesterol disorders
The Endocrinology Department of the Hutchinson Clinic can help with any of these conditions. If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment, please call (620) 669-2533.
