What is an endocrinologist? An endocrinologist is a specially trained physician who treats patients suffering from hormonal imbalances. Endocrinology therapy is used to help restore the normal balance of hormones. The more common conditions treated by an endocrinologist include:
• Metabolic Disorders
• Thyroid Diseases
Thyroid disease is one of the most recognized conditions. It is highly advertised as the culprit for most hormone imbalances. The thyroid is a gland that regulates just about every system in the body through production of thyroid hormones. These hormones regulate how a body uses fats and carbohydrates for energy, absorbs and uses other hormones and vitamins, helps control body temperature, and influences the heart rate.
When thyroid disorders are left untreated, complications arise. If hypothyroidism is not treated, this can raise cholesterol levels, making it more likely a stroke or heart attack will occur. Very low levels of thyroid hormones can cause a life-threatening drop in body temperature. If hyperthyroidism goes untreated, it can cause serious heart problems and brittle bones.
You always want your thyroid levels in a normal range for optimum health and when they are not, we are here to treat you. Call now for more information on how Endocrinology Institute Of South Florida in Bonita Springs, FL and Dr. Orlando Fernandez can help you.
