You probably don’t think about your endocrine system much – until something goes wrong. But it plays a role in nearly every function in your body.
When something goes wrong in this complex system, you can experience a baffling variety of symptoms, depending on which hormones are involved: weight gain, anxiety, hair loss, sweating, diarrhea, and many others.
Pediatric endocrinologists at Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento work with children to diagnose whether a hormonal imbalance is at the root of their symptoms. Sutter Medical Foundation endocrinologists work with adults to diagnose or treat diabetes. Once your condition is properly diagnosed, your endocrinologist will work with you to develop a treatment plan that restores your hormonal levels and relieves your symptoms.
