Throughout your body, an interconnected system of glands known as the endocrine system makes the hormones that affect processes from head to toe. Hormones travel in your bloodstream and work slowly to help regulate organs and tissues. Your health can be affected if your body produces too much or too little of a hormone or if your body doesn’t properly respond to hormones.
Work with the experts to receive top-quality care including diagnostic evaluation and treatment of endocrine-related conditions such as:
- Adrenal disorders
- Cholesterol and lipid abnormalities
- Diabetes, including pancreas- and insulin-related disorders
- Fatty liver disease
- Growth-related disorders
- Obesity and metabolism-related issues
- Pituitary disorders
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
- Low testosterone
- Thyroid and parathyroid disorders
Your endocrinology team will get to know you and your specific condition, as well as your needs and care preferences. Diagnostic testing, including thyroid biopsy may be performed to determine the cause of your hormonal imbalance. You and your healthcare team will then work together to formulate a treatment plan to restore your body’s hormonal balance.
Endocrinology services are offered once a month at the Granite Falls Health Clinic (Avera Affiliate) by Dr. Enrico Ocampo.
