Dealing with a hormonal condition can be stressful and complicated. Working with an Endocrinologist, a physician who has been specially trained in hormonal care, can provide you with the care and resources you need to better manage your condition.
Legacy’s trusted Endocrinology team works with patients over the age of 17 to diagnose and treat health issues related to the endocrine system including:
- Uncontrolled or difficult to manage diabetes
- Disease and disorders of the adrenal glands
- Metabolic disorders
- Thyroid Problems including hypothyroid and hyperthyroid disorders
- Lipid disorders including high cholesterol and elevated triglycerides
- Problems with menstruation or menopause
- Pituitary disorders
- Problems with calcium metabolism or osteoporosis
Depending on your reason for a meeting with an Endocrinologist, your first visit may include a discussion about your current care plan, your medical history, a detailed health assessment and additional lab testing if needed. Based on this, our team will work with you to build or update your care plan.
If you are a patient with diabetes, you can take part in a free Legacy program, Take Control of Diabetes. The program provides patients with access to a team of health care providers such as Nutritionists, Pharmacists, Patient Educators, and (other?) who will work with you and your physician to set lifestyle goals, diet and medication plans to better manage your condition. Our Endocrinologists can also connect non-diabetic patients with the same group of experts at Legacy to promote your good health and perhaps even prevent diabetes. These programs and integration of services are all part of our commitment to making Legacy your trusted medical home.
