The doctor who has the specialization in glands and the hormones they form are endocrinologists. They deal with biochemical processes that make our body functions, comprising how our body transforms food into energy and how it grows. They work with adults and kids alike.
What they can do?
They cover a lot of dimensions, diagnosing and treating conditions that affect our:
- Bone metabolism, like osteoporosis
- Thyroid, a butterfly-shaped gland in our neck that regulate our metabolism, brain growth, energy and development
- Hypothalamus, the part of our brain that regulates body temperature, thirst, hunger
- Pancreas, which formulates insulin and other substances for digestion
- Pituitary, a pea-sized gland at the base of our brain that maintains the balance of hormones
- Adrenals, glands that sit on top of our kidneys and help to regulate things like our blood pressure, stress response, metabolism, and sex hormones
- Reproductive glands (gonads): ovaries in women, testes in men
- Parathyroid’s, small glands in our neck that control the calcium in our blood
Your primary doctor can deal with diabetes, but they may refer you to an endocrinologist when:
- You're new to diabetes and need to learn how to handle it.
- You take a lot of shots or use an insulin pump.
- They don't have a lot of practice treating diabetes
- When diabetes has gotten tough to manage, or your treatment isn't effective.
- You have serious complications from diabetes
