Our team of endocrinology experts at DaVita Medical Group specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of disorders that are caused by abnormal levels of hormones that are secreted by glands such as the pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, ovaries, testes, and pancreas. Abnormal levels of hormones may impact growth and development, metabolism, sexual function, reproduction, and mood. Common endocrine disorders include diabetes mellitus, acromegaly, Addison’s disease, Cushing’s syndrome, Graves’ disease, hypothyroidism, and hyperthyroidism. These disorders often have widespread symptoms, affect multiple parts of the body, and can range in severity from mild to very severe. Treatments depend on the specific disorder but often focus on adjusting hormone balance using synthetic hormones.
