Endocrinology

About Reid Endocrinology Center

Endocrinology is the branch of medicine concerned with endocrine glands and hormones. The organs involved with the endocrine system incldue the pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, ovaries, testes, and pancreas. All these glands secrete hormones into the blood. Endocrine system disorders can often be attributed to hormone imbalances. Endocrine system disorders can display themselves with a variety of symptoms. Several lab tests may need to be performed to arrive at a proper diagnosis.

Reid Endocrinology Center treats patients with Type 1, Type 2 diabetes, and many other health issues.

Our Diabetes & Nutrition Education program ensures that patients are knowledgeable in managing their dietary needs.
