Aultman Medical Group – Endocrinology specializes in diabetes management and other hormonal disorders.
Aultman Medical Group – Endocrinology offers board-certified physician care in diabetes management. Endocrinology is the field of hormone-related diseases in which an endocrinologist diagnoses and treats hormone problems and the complications that arise from them, focusing both on the hormones and the many glands and tissues that produce them.
Hormones regulate metabolism, respiration, growth, reproduction, sensory perception and movement. Hormone imbalances are the underlying reason for a wide range of medical conditions. Your body secretes about 50 different hormones which travel through the bloodstream, sending messages to organs and tissues and regulating most of the processes in the body. Too much or too little of a hormone – even by small amounts – can cause side effects throughout the body.
Conditions diagnosed and treated at Aultman Medical Group – Endocrinology include adrenal disorders, diabetes mellitus, hyperparathyroidism, obesity, osteoporosis, rheumatic disorders and thyroid disorders.
