To diagnose Endocrine Disorders, we often conduct some or all of the following tests:
Urine test – A urine test is typically conducted to rule out other issues such as infections and kidney problems.
Genetic testing – Your doctor may suggest genetic testing to check for any genetic abnormalities that could make you more susceptible to Endocrine disease or may interfere with your response to treatment or medications
Hormone testing – Since endocrine disorders are caused by hormone imbalance it makes sense to do hormone testing and see If you have abnormally high or low levels of any hormones.
Imaging studies – This may be necessary in cases where there are tumours or other growth that need to be studied further to see if they’re malignant or cancerous, and if they are the root cause of your issues.
Endocrine Disorders are tricky to treat. There is no standard, one-size-fits-all treatment. Your doctor will have to carefully chart out a detailed plan of action as far as treatment and management of the condition is concerned. We offer treatments such as hormone therapy, medications and surgery. Of course, the best treatment option for you will be discussed by your doctor, explaining the pros and cons and why they decided on going that particular route. Our goal is to provide you with all the information so you can make an informed decision.
If you suspect you have an Endocrine Disorder or want more information on this, please book an appointment with us.
