Frequently Asked Questions
What is an Endocrinologist?
An endocrinologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the endocrine system, a complex group of glands that produce hormones which control activities in your body ranging from reproduction and metabolism to growth and development. These highly trained specialty physicians concentrate on the treatment of patients with often complex endocrine and metabolic disorders including diabetes, thyroid disorders, osteoporosis, growth hormone deficiency, infertility, cholesterol disorders, hypertension and obesity.
The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) is a professional community of physicians specializing in endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism and is committed to enhancing the ability of its members to provide the highest quality of patient care. AACE represents more than 6,500 endocrinologists in the United States and abroad. It is the largest association of clinical endocrinologists in the world. Click about AACE to learn more.
