Endocrinology Q & A

What is Endocrinology?

Endocrinology is the branch of medicine that deals with the endocrine system, its diseases, and its specific secretions known as hormones.

The endocrine system is complex, made up of nine glands and over 100 hormones. It controls and regulates many of your body’s essential daily functions, such as your:

  • Growth
  • Mood
  • Energy
  • Digestion
  • Metabolism
  • Sexual development
  • Mental abilities

 

Endocrinologists like Dr. Saka Kazeem are specially trained in treating and managing complex conditions involving abnormalities and dysfunctions in the endocrine system.

 

What do endocrinologists treat?

When glands in your endocrine system aren’t producing sufficient levels of certain hormones or produce too much of these hormones, your body’s functioning can suffer, painful symptoms can emerge, and diseases can develop.

Dr. Kazeem specializes in treating a variety of hormonal conditions that affect your body’s endocrine system, including, but not limited to:

  • Diabetes - body’s inability to produce or respond to hormone insulin
  • Hypothyroidism - thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone
  • Hyperthyroidism - thyroid gland produces too much of thyroid hormone
  • Adrenal gland disorders - over-nervousness, sweating, Cushing’s disease, Addison’s disease, weight loss, loss of energy and anemia
  • Osteoporosis - condition that affects bones and makes them break easily due to decreased production of hormone estrogen
  • Obesity due to hormonal imbalance

 

Why should I see an endocrinologist?

Hormones affect functions throughout the body. An imbalance can cause a wide range of health issues. If you or your primary care physician suspect that hormonal imbalance is the underlying cause of the health problem, you definitely need to see skilled and experienced endocrinologists like Dr. Saka Kazeem.  Call the office or schedule an appointment online today with Dr. Kazeem.
