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.
An endocrinologist works with the
endocrine system, which is responsible for secreting hormones into the blood to
regulate a wide range of bodily processes. 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.
