Endocrinology, Diabetes & Nutrition

Experts in Endocrinology 

We diagnose and treat patients with diseases of the endocrine system including adrenal, thyroid, bone, pituitary, and metabolic disorders.

Care and Treatment of Endocrine Disorders

Addison’s disease

A disorder that occurs when the adrenal glands do not produce enough of their hormones; characterized by progressive anemia, low blood pressure, great weakness, and bronze discoloration of the skin. 

Cholesterol abnormalities

Also known as a lipid disorder, condition with high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and fats called triglycerides leading to an increased risk of heart disease.


A benign tumor that develops near the pituitary gland (a small endocrine gland at the base of the brain).

Cushing’s syndrome

An uncommon hormonal disorder caused by high levels of the hormone cortisol, also referred to as hypercortisolism.

Diabetes mellitus

The most common form of diabetes, caused by a deficiency of the pancreatic hormone insulin, which results in a failure to metabolize sugars and starch. Sugars accumulate in the blood and urine, causing a risk of convulsions and coma.

Fibrous dysplasia

A chronic disorder in which bone expands due to abnormal development of fibrous tissue, often resulting in uneven bone growth, pain, and brittle or deformed bones.

Graves’ disease

An autoimmune disorder that leads to overactivity of the thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism) and is characterized by swelling of the neck and protrusion of the eyes resulting from an overactive thyroid gland.


A condition with increased levels of lipids (fats) in the blood, including cholesterol and triglycerides.

Hyperparathyroidism (primary hyperparathyroidism)

A metabolic disorder in which one (or more) of the parathyroid glands produces too much parathyroid hormone, which can result in the loss of bone tissue.


A rare disorder in which the pituitary gland either fails to produce one or more of its hormones or doesn’t produce enough of them, affecting a range of body functions such as growth, blood pressure and reproduction.


Also known as underactive thyroid, a condition in which the thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone, undermining the body’s ability to function efficiently.




Also known as underactive thyroid, a condition in which the thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone, undermining the body’s ability to function efficiently.

Osteogenesis imperfecta

Also known as brittle-bone disease, a genetic (inherited) disorder characterized by bones that break easily without a specific cause.


A disease in which there is a loss of bone mass and destruction of bone tissue, causing weakening of the bones and makes them more likely to break. The bones most often affected are the hips, spine, and wrists.

Paget’s disease

A chronic disorder that can result in enlarged and misshapen bones, accompanied by pain, fractures, and arthritis in the joints near the affected bones.


A common type of benign pituitary tumor, resulting in high levels of prolactin in the blood (hyperprolactinemia). It can occur in women and in men.


An inflammation of the thyroid gland that can arise due to a variety of causes; can result from an autoimmune condition or an infection.

Thyroid nodules

Refers to an abnormal growth of thyroid cells that form a lump within the thyroid gland; although the vast majority of thyroid nodules are non-cancerous, a small proportion of thyroid nodules do contain thyroid cancer.

Vitamin D deficiency

Vitamin D deficiency can lead to bone pain, bone softening, and muscle weakness, and has been associated with a variety of other health conditions, such as diabetes and hypertension.

This team is led by a group of experts committed to integrating their medical expertise and comprehensive care to treat all ailments emanating from diabetes and other endocrine-related disorders and dysfunctions  Our team of doctors work closely to provide consultative, diagnostic and therapeutic services in the management of:

  • Thyroid disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Pituitary and disorders of physical growth
  • Adrenal disorders
  • Disorders of male and female hormones
