Disorders of the Endocrine System
At Houston Endocrinology Center, we specialize in the evaluation and treatment of diseases caused by endocrine gland dysfunction. By producing, storing and secreting hormones, the endocrine system is responsible for almost every cell, organ, and function of our bodies. The most common disorders associated with endocrinology include type 1 and type 2 diabetes, thyroid diseases such as hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, adrenal dysfunction (Cushing’s disease), osteoporosis, hyperparathyroidism, pituitary insufficiency, androgen deficiency (low testosterone) and polycystic ovarian syndrome. Other uncommon diseases also related to the endocrine system are pheochromocytoma, hyperaldosteronism, and diabetes insipidus. At Houston Endocrinology Center, we strive to offer excellent medical care while ensuring that our patients understand the basis of their illness and all complexities of the treatment plan. Patient satisfaction is our number one goal.
