Bringing balance back to the endocrine system

The endocrinology team at CMH restores balance to the body through medicine, education and therapy. Trained and experienced endocrinologists test and diagnose patients based on their symptoms and provide individualized care for proper treatment. CMH can also provide guidance for those patients who need education about their disease and need help understanding what’s going on with their bodies.

Endocrinology is the study and treatment of glands in the endocrine system that secrete hormones. Sometimes, when our bodies don’t secrete hormones like they should, imbalances can occur.

Imbalances of the endocrine system may cause:

  • diabetes
  • osteoporosis
  • thyroid disease
  • hypertension
  • holesterol problems

among other disorders.

Many of these imbalances are very serious to overall health, and can cause major issues in other areas of the body. Treating endocrine disorders can make a big difference in a patient’s wellness, which is why the Columbia Memorial Network takes great care in the specialty of endocrinology.
