Undiagnosed thyroid problems can put patients at serious risk for developing other complications including cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and infertility. The good news is, when diagnosed, most thyroid diseases can be safely managed.
Thousands of people suffer from conditions and diseases related to hormone disorders. Endocrinology is a branch of medicine focused on the endocrine system, which helps to regulate and balance hormone levels in your body. When a hormone imbalance occurs one or more systems in the body may be affected. Our bodies have a built-in mechanism to respond to any changes in hormone levels and bring them back to normal. However, sometimes this system fails, and it is unable to function properly. When this occurs you often will be referred to an endocrinologist.
Endocrinologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of frequently complex and often chronic conditions which involve several different systems within the body. TPMG offers endocrinology services across Hampton Roads for conditions such as diabetes mellitus, thyroid disorders, pituitary problems, menstrual disorders, osteoporosis and more.
