An endocrinologist is a specialist doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating disorders of the endocrine system- the glands and organs that make hormones like thyroid, pituitary, pancreas, adrenals, ovaries and testes.
When should I consult an endocrinologist?
If you are suffering from some hormone-related condition like Diabetes, Hypo or hyperthyroidism, infertility, etc. your physician or family doctor may refer you to an Endocrinologist for further evaluation and guidance. Most general practitioners have the necessary skills to diagnose and treat basic hormonal conditions, but sometimes the help of a specialist is needed. An endocrinologist is a specialist who has meticulously studied hormonal conditions and knows the best possible treatment options, even when conventional treatments do not work.
