Endocrinology in Shelbyville
Treating Diseases within the Endocrine System
The human endocrine system is a complex set of hormone-producing glands
that regulate a range of functions within the human body.
- These glands produce hormones related to:
- Stress reaction
- Sexual development and function
- Kidney function
- Body temperature
- Blood clotting
- Skin pigmentation
- Blood pressure
Problems within these glands can affect your health by creating hormone
imbalance and causing your endocrine feedback system to malfunction. The
endocrinologists at Major Health Partners diagnose and treat diseases
and disorders of the endocrine system.
- Some of these diseases include:
- Metabolic syndrome
- Hypo- and hyperthyroidism
Our team can often diagnose these issues by testing your blood or urine
or by performing an imaging test that will locate swelling or tumors.
Because hormone levels are sensitive and require a delicate balance, treatment
will be closely monitored and adjusted as needed.
Our endocrinology services are provided by Franciscan Diabetes & Endocrinology
Specialists. Our services are available on the 2nd floor of the MHP Medical
Center, Suite 250.
