Desert Care Network: Primary and Specialty Care provides services for endocrinology in the Coachella Valley of California. Our endocrinology specialists can provide care for patients who are suffering from conditions caused by hormonal issues.
Endocrinology is the area of medicine involving the endocrine system. This system controls hormones, and includes the thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, ovaries, testes, adrenal glands, pituitary glands, and hypothalamus. When any part of the endocrine system does not function properly, a patient’s hormones can become imbalanced and cause a number of conditions affecting metabolism, reproduction, growth, and development, as well as how the body responds to its environment and the provision of energy and nutrients that are needed for normal bodily function.
Many patients are referred to an endocrinologist after seeing their regular physician. If the patient is experiencing health problems that their physician suspects are caused by a hormonal issue, they will refer the patient to an endocrinologist. And endocrinologist’s goal is to restore the normal balance of hormones in their patient’s body in order to cure or manage the health issue that they are facing.
Common endocrine diseases and disorders that are treated by an endocrinologist include:
Certain Types of Cancer
Pituitary Gland Disorders
Reproduction Issues and Infertility
