Endocrinology is a medical specialty focused on the hormones that are created by your endocrine system. Hormones influence many bodily functions, including metabolism, growth, and reproduction.

At AdvantageCare Physicians (ACPNY), our endocrinologists diagnose and treat many endocrine conditions, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Pituitary conditions
  • Adrenal disorders
  • Osteoporosis
  • Calcium disorders
  • Low testosterone
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Obesity

Your Primary Care Provider may want to talk to you about seeing an endocrinologist if you’ve been diagnosed with any of these conditions or are experiencing any associated symptoms. Endocrinologists employ a range of treatment options to manage your conditions, including:

  • Injectable osteoporosis therapy
  • Fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy for thyroid nodules
  • Insulin pump therapy and continuous glucose monitoring technology
  • Nutrition counseling and guidance

At ACPNY, we offer comprehensive, “whole you” endocrine care. That means we’ll look at your entire health picture—the physical, mental, and lifestyle factors that impact your health. Combined with your medical history, concerns, and goals, we’ll develop a care plan that’s the right fit for you.

ACPNY endocrinologists work alongside our team of Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) and Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialists (CDCESs), who can offer you one-on-one medical nutrition therapy, as well as diabetes self-management education and support. You can learn more about these services here.
