An endocrinologist consultation can diagnose and provide treatment recommendations for hormonal conditions, such as thyroid disease and diabetes.
What does an endocrinologist consultation involve?
An endocrinologist consultation is a chance for patients to ask questions and raise concerns about their health needs. It’s also an opportunity for our endocrinologists to assess your current health, identify any issues or potential problems, and recommend a course of treatment.
What does an endocrinologist specialize in?
Endocrinologists are highly experienced, qualified specialists who diagnose, treat, and manage hormonal diseases and conditions. These include diabetes, hypertension, and thyroid conditions.
What does the endocrinologist want to discuss?
During the consultation, the endocrinologist will want to discuss your complete medical history. This may include:
- Any medications you take or have taken
- Your lifestyle, such as whether or not you smoke and how active you are, as well as information relevant to your problem, including sports and fitness activities and what your work involves
- Any symptoms you are experiencing or have experienced
Why have an endocrinologist consultation?
Hormones are produced and regulated in the body by endocrine glands, including adrenal glands, parathyroid glands, and thyroid glands. Your hormones control body functions such as blood pressure, growth, and reproduction. An endocrinologist consultation can find out what the problem is and suggest a course of treatment or surgery.
An endocrinologist consultation is often recommended for:
- Adrenal disorders
- Rheumatic disorders
- Thyroid disorders
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
Endocrinologist consultation outcomes
The endocrinologist can assess your symptoms and recommend next steps, which may include a particular course of treatment.
Preparing for an endocrinologist consultation
Before the consultation, we recommend that you gather together the information the endocrinologist might need, think about what you want to get out of the consultation, and prepare any questions.
The specialist will want to collect basic personal information, including name, age, and health care number, as well as the name of your family doctor if you have one, or any other health professionals you are working with.
