Endocrinology focuses on the health of the hormonal systems of the body. These systems regulate almost every organ system, and are generally incredibly complex, making the working knowledge of endocrinologists all the more impressive.

Conditions managed

Endocrinologists diagnose, treat and manage conditions such as (but not limited to):

  • Thyroid disorders (hyperthyroid, hypothyroid, thyroid cancer)
  • Diabetes (type 1, type 2, gestational and others)
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Obesity
  • Osteoporosis and osteopenia
  • Parathyroid disorders and metabolic bone disease
  • Adrenal and pituitary disorders
  • Transgender medicine prescribing
  • Reproductive endocrinology and hormone replacement

Special tests and procedures

Sometimes endocrinologists will need to perform specialised tests, some can be performed at the clinic like blood tests, but others need to be organised in hospitals or specialised testing facilities, these can include.

  • Fasting blood tests (available at GSH – booking preferred)
  • Oral glucose tolerance tests (available at GSH – requires booking)
  • Dexamethasone suppression tests (available at GSH – requires booking)
  • Insulin tolerance test
  • Bone densitometry
  • Thyroid testing and ultrasound
  • Further specialist testing as required.

If you require one of these tests your endocrinologist will discuss the benefits and risks, potential side effects and costs as well as help organise and facilitate these tests for you.

Issues with the endocrine system are remarkably common, so it is a relief to have specialists in this field work so closely with the team at GSHealth so we can get people seen, diagnosed and treated promptly, and discuss cases in a really efficient manner.
