Endocrine System Conditions

If you have an endocrine disorder, it can affect important functions of the body, such as growth, metabolism, mood, sleep, reproduction and sexual health, and more. Common endocrine issues include:

  • Adrenal gland conditions, such as tumors, Cushing syndrome, or Addison’s disease
  • Amenorrhea, not starting menstruation by age 15 or missed periods in women who aren’t pregnant
  • Diabetes
  • Hirsutism, excessive body hair
  • Hypercalcemia (high calcium) or hypocalcemia (low calcium)
  • Hypogonadism, low levels of the hormone in males needed for growth and development
  • Kidney stones
  • Multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) syndromes, enlargement of certain glands
  • Osteoporosis (loss of bone strength) or osteopenia (weakened bones)
  • Pancreas disorders
  • Parathyroid gland problems
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which causes abnormal periods and other symptoms
  • Polyuria, frequent urination
  • Thyroid diseases, such as goiter, nodules, Graves’ disease, or Hashimoto’s disease

Services & Support

Your doctor will take the time to get to know you in order to tailor your treatment plan to your unique needs. You may receive:

  • Diagnostic tests, such as blood tests or imaging scans, to determine the cause of symptoms
  • Lifestyle recommendations
  • Monitoring of your condition
  • Medications
  • Referrals to a surgeon or other specialist, if needed

Thyroid Cancer Testing

Get accurate information so you and your doctor can make informed choices about your care. To diagnose or rule out thyroid gland cancer, you may have:

  • Thyroid fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy, which takes a small sample for testing in a lab
  • Afirma® thyroid nodule testing, an advanced option to look for cancer if the results of an FNA biopsy are not clear

Help to Pay for Medications

Ask our team to recommend patient assistance programs if you need help to cover the cost of your drugs.

Ask for a Referral
