Clinical Specialties

Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

CareMount Medical’s Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism department deals with medical conditions that primarily relate to disorders of hormonal imbalance.

Symptoms and Conditions Treated

Diabetes
The most common endocrine disorder is Diabetes. We treat patients with Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes and Gestational Diabetes.

Thyroid Disorders
Our department also specializes in the treatment of Thyroid disorders, including thyroid cancer, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism and thyroid nodules.

Metabolism
Metabolic bone conditions such as osteoporosis and problems with the parathyroid glands are also managed by our endocrinologists.

Other Conditions Treated
Other conditions treated include pituitary gland disorders, adrenal gland disorders, low testosterone levels in men, polycystic ovary syndrome and other causes of irregular menstrual cycles in women. Also, women with excess facial and/or body hair may have an identifiable cause of this symptom. Unexplained hair loss and acne also sometimes have a measurable hormonal basis.

Treatment Options
For many endocrine conditions, the treatment is medication. Medications may treat the underlying condition and/or treat the symptoms. Lifestyle interventions of dietary therapy and physical activity are important in the management of diabetes. Some endocrine conditions need to just be monitored but no medication is given.

The endocrinologists in the Department are very comfortable recommending and managing insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors when appropriate in someone with diabetes.
