Diabetes and endocrinology

What we do

Endocrinologists diagnose and treat hormone imbalances. Our multidisciplinary team includes consultants, nurses, dietitians, a psychotherapist and a podiatrist.

Hormones are substances that help to control activities in your body.  Different types of hormones control reproduction, metabolism, growth and development.

The glands that make up the endocrine system include the thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, ovaries, testes, adrenal, pituitary and hypothalamus.
