Endocrinology

Endocrinologists diagnose and treat hormonal and hormone-related disorders.

Endocrinologists who are a part of Mount Nittany Health treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • All forms of thyroid disease and cancer
  • Pituitary diseases and tumors
  • All aspects of calcium metabolism, including osteoporosis and parathyroid problems
  • Adrenal problems
  • Low or abnormal testosterone or estrogen hormone levels
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (a condition commonly affecting young women with insulin resistance)
  • Unusual, unexplained symptoms such as sweating or flushing

Treatment for endocrine-related conditions can include prescription medication, lab work and other testing, education on coping with a condition and, in some cases, surgery.

Diabetes Care

Endocrinologists also treat patients with diabetes since the disease is related to the pancreas, a gland that produces insulin to regulate glucose (sugar) levels in the body.
