Endocrinologists are internal medicine physicians who treat patients with endocrine diseases such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, growth hormone deficiency, osteoporosis, cholesterol disorders, hypertension, obesity and other hormone-related disorders.
In the United States, diabetes is the most common endocrine disease. According to the National Institutes of Health, nearly 10 percent of the U.S. population has diabetes. One in four people with diabetes don’t know they have the disease.
Diabetes is a condition in which the body cannot regulate blood glucose, or sugar, levels appropriately. As a result, glucose levels in the blood become elevated and over time, cause major health problems and sometimes lead to limb amputation or blindness. Those with diabetes are categorized as having type 1 or type 2, based on how the body is producing insulin. While diabetes can’t be cured, it can be controlled.
