We have all heard of hormones but they are actually natural chemicals produced by the body to control various activities in our bodies. Hormones control anything from mood, growth and development to more complex things like balancing blood sugar and reproduction.
The endocrine glands include the thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, ovaries, testes, adrenal, pituitary and hypothalamus and there are some in the intestines.
Endocrine conditions are often complex and can involve many body systems. These conditions can affect how we put on weight, how we reproduce and even how susceptible we are to getting other illness.
Our endocrinology specialists have a range of expertise in diagnosing and treating these conditions. Along with our on-site blood testing unit the team can efficiently help to monitor and control any endocrine conditions that you may be diagnosed with.
As with our other specialist team, the endocrinology team will take the time post diagnosis to explain that it means for you and will make use of the wider Prana Medical team to make sure you get the best care to help manage the condition. It is a priority for the team to make sure that you clearly understand the condition that you may have and they will do their best to answer all the questions you may have.
