Hormones control nearly all the processes in your body. The network of glands, also known as the endocrine system, creates and releases hormones. These chemicals help regulate your metabolism, emotions, sleep, and more by sending messages through your blood to your organs.
You need to see an endocrinologist when one of these glands produces too much or too little of a hormone. These imbalances are shown through symptoms like weight gain, high blood pressure, and changes in sleep, mood, and behavior.
Dignity Health Medical Foundation endocrinologists specialize in diagnosing and treating disorders of the endocrine system, including diabetes, thyroid disorders, and pituitary diseases. When you visit our clinics, know you’ll receive quality service that always keeps you at the front of your care.
