WHAT IS ENDOCRINE HEALTH?

The endocrine system is a system of glands that make hormones. These hormones help to control many different functions in the body such as the rate of metabolism, bone health, growth, and reproduction. Hormones also coordinate nutrition within the body. The endocrine glands include the thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, ovaries, testes, adrenals, pituitary and hypothalamus. A number of conditions occur when there is a hormone imbalance. Our goal is to get this back in order through a multidisciplinary patient centered approach.
