What is an Endocrinologist?

"An Endocrinologist is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating hormonal related conditions. There are fifty different hormones in our blood stream and if one of them goes too high or too low, it can impact your body function and your health. Some of the conditions that we treat are Type I and Type II Diabetes, thyroid and para-thyroid disorders and pituitary gland disorders." -Dr. Mariam Murtaza Ali
