Your endocrine system produces and controls your hormones that regulate a multitude of your body’s functions. Everything from metabolism to sleep are affected by the endocrine system.
Hormone levels that are out of sync can be very problematic. They can lead to everything from diabetes to thyroid conditions. The major glands that make up your endocrine system are the pituitary, thyroid, adrenal and pancreas.
Many factors can contribute to an imbalance of hormones. Anything from stress to infections can cause an imbalance. When that happens, it’s time to see an endocrinologist.
When to see an Endocrinologist
Your endocrinologist works closely with your primary care physician when specific conditions may be present. They’ll assist your general care team in the diagnosis and treatments of diseases affecting the endocrine system. Most commonly, patients who are diabetic and prediabetic will see an endocrinologist after being referred by an internal medicine provider.
