Endocrinology specialists (endocrinologists) diagnose, treat and prevent diseases that affect the endocrine system. The endocrine system is comprised of glands—organs that produce hormones linked to metabolism, growth, development and reproduction.
Diseases of the endocrine system include diabetes mellitus, thyroid and parathyroid disorders, osteoporosis, adrenal disorders, pituitary and growth disorders, weight problems and obesity, hypertension, cholesterol and other lipid disorders, sexual dysfunction disorders, hormonal imbalances, and other metabolic diseases.
Endocrinologists are board certified in Internal Medicine, with additional specialization in endocrinology. The endocrinologists of Olathe Health System work closely with primary care physicians to diagnose, treat, and carefully monitor patients with endocrine disorders.
