Dr. Shvets was wonderful! As an initial evaluation, she was thorough and explained my condition and medications. She was very patient with me.

What does an endocrinologist do?

Endocrinologists, also known as hormone doctors, are doctors skilled in diagnosing, treating and preventing disorders related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system consists of eight glands that produce hormones that are responsible for our growth and development, metabolism, reproduction and sexual functions, as well as mood regulation. You can read more about the endocrine system in this article on the endocrine system by the Hormone Health Network. Some of the most common disorders endocrinologists are experts in include adrenal disorders, osteoporosis, diabetes, male sexual issues, pituitary disorders, thyroid disorders, weight issues and women’s health.

 

Hormone disorders are a result of an imbalanced endocrine system, which causes the hormone levels to be too high or too low. An imbalance can also occur if the body doesn’t respond to hormones normally. Other risk factors include stress, infections and changes in the body’s electrolyte balance. Diabetes is the most prevalent endocrine disease in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 12.6% of people suffer from diabetes in the country. It is also responsible for 24.8 deaths per 100,000 people in the population.

Diabetes and Thyroid Tests

To accurately diagnose the endocrine diseases, your doctor might recommend diagnostic tests, some of which are summarized below:

  • Diabetes and Prediabetes tests: To diagnose diabetes, physicians generally use a combination of fasting plasma glucose (FPG) tests and the A1C test. If the results of both tests indicate diabetes, then the diagnosis is confirmed. Sometimes, the blood sample in one of the two tests might not indicate diabetes. This usually happens when the disease is in the early stages. The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases recommends undergoing these tests periodically to keep track of the disease.
  • Thyroid Tests: Doctors recommend these tests to check for any indication of hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. The thyroid gland produces two hormones— thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3)—that control how the body uses energy. To diagnose thyroid, doctors use a combination of TSH, T4, T3 and thyroid antibody tests. Apart from this, ultrasounds, thyroid scans and radioactive iodine uptake tests can help to understand the condition better. Read more about the various thyroid tests on National Institutes of Health website.
