The treatment of endocrine disorders depends on the specific disorder and its severity. In many cases, medications such as hormone replacement therapy or insulin therapy may be used to help regulate hormone levels. Lifestyle changes, such as a healthy diet and regular exercise, may also be recommended to help manage symptoms. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove a tumor or other abnormal growth that is causing the disorder.
Internal medicine Doctors at Aster Whitefield Hospital provide diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of endocrine disorders, but some of the most common include:
Diabetes: a disorder in which the body is unable to properly regulate blood sugar levels.

Hyperthyroidism: a disorder in which the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone, leading to symptoms such as weight loss, rapid heart rate, and anxiety.
Addison's disease: a disorder in which the adrenal glands do not produce enough hormones, leading to symptoms such as fatigue, weight loss, and low blood pressure.
