Diabetes & Endocrinology

Customized Whole-Body Care

Diabetes & Endocrinology Services

The endocrine system controls the production of hormones in your body. The system creates and regulates the hormones your body uses to control development and metabolism. Its organs include the adrenal and pituitary glands, hypothalamus, ovaries and testes, pancreas, parathyroid glands, and thyroid. A slight change in function of one or more endocrine gland can disrupt the delicate balance of hormones in your body, leading to an endocrine disorder or disease. Rochester Regional Health offers comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services for people that suffer from endocrine disorders.

Causes of Endocrine Disorders

Causes of endocrine disorders vary and usually depend on the specific gland involved, but most people suffering from any of the many endocrine diseases complain of fatigue and weakness.

Endocrine disorders tend to be grouped into two categories:

  1. Glands producing too much or too little of an endocrine hormone, called hormone imbalance
  2. Development of lesions like nodules or tumors in the endocrine system, which might affect hormone levels

Increased or decreased levels of hormones may be caused by:

  • Genetic disorder, like congenital hypothyroidism or multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN)
  • Problem with your endocrine feedback system
  • Disease
  • Failure of a gland to stimulate another gland
  • Infection
  • Injury to an endocrine gland
  • Tumor in an endocrine gland

Our Endocrine Specialists will use blood and urine tests to check your hormone levels and determine if you have an endocrine disorder.
