The endocrine system is a complex group of glands which produce hormones that control activities in your body. Different hormones control functions such as:
- Reproduction and fertility
- Metabolism (food burning and waste elimination)
- Growth and development
At LewisGale, our endocrinology experts are dedicated to helping diagnose any hormonal imbalances and restore normal balance to your system, ultimately helping your body function at its best. We treat a number of endocrine conditions including:
- Reproduction and infertility
- Thyroid disorders
- Metabolic disorders, including obesity
- Growth disorders (typically pediatric)
Along with your primary care doctor, our experts can create an effective diabetes treatment plan for your specific needs. At LewisGale, we offer personalized diabetes care that includes one-on-one counseling and education.
Reproduction and Infertility Care
If you’re trying to have a baby but you’re not getting pregnant, you may wonder if you have a fertility issue. It’s possible—in fact, about one in ten American couples experience infertility. At LewisGale, we work with you to make safe pregnancies and parenthood a reality.
Individuals with thyroid conditions often have low energy levels, as well as issues with muscle strength, emotions, weight control and body temperature. Our team works with you to regulate an overactive or underactive thyroid and restore your energy and health to optimal levels.
Metabolic and Obesity Care
At LewisGale, we treat patients who are overweight or obese, sometimes because of metabolic and hormonal problems. We work to identify hormonal imbalances that may be affecting an individual’s weight gain and then provide an effective plan for improved health.
Pediatric Growth Care
Some children and adults experience hormonal imbalances that cause short stature and other growth disorders. Our endocrine specialists provide safe and effective growth hormone replacement therapy for even the youngest patients.
