  • Endocrinology is becoming increasingly important with conditions such as diabetes growing more prevalent throughout the United States and in other parts of the world. In fact, Tennessee has one of the highest rates of diabetes in the nation. But the endocrinologists at Wellmont Medical Associates are committed to effectively treating and controlling diabetes and other endocrinological conditions.

    What is an endocrinologist?

Endocrinologists treat diseases and conditions occurring in organs and glands throughout the body, including the hypothalamus, pituitary and pineal glands, thyroid and parathyroid glands, adrenal glands, pancreas and reproductive glands.
