Endocrinology involves the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to hormones and the glands. Hormones affect almost all functions of the body, and an imbalance can negatively impact your overall health.
The physician team at Sierra Nevada Endocrinology Consultants will create treatment plans customized to a patient’s diagnosis, health goals, and lifestyle. Treatment options may include an insulin pump to keep blood glucose levels within target ranges; medication or synthetic hormones when lifestyle changes alone are insufficient; or surgical removal of a gland (most commonly the thyroid, pancreas, parathyroid, or adrenal glands).

- Addison’s disease
